“God bless my mother for the hustle she went through before making me who I am today????. Am pleading to @lafc @adidasfootball @sportingkc to help me build a football pitch in my village in order for the younger ones looking up to me or any other top footballer to have a good training pitch to train,’’
“Am also pleading for you to at least bring one or two players from my village to USA to archive their dreams of playing at the high level since they’re better and skillful players in my village than I do.
“Also any football agents or individuals interested to help these players and development towards this project can PM and DM me on all my social media handles. Thanks”
