Talented Ghanaian footballer, Christopher Bonsu Baah has opened the lid on his Personal family struggles and the trauma he had to endure to become an established footballer.
The budding talent who was left in the cold weather of Europe alone as a teenager with no place to call a home narrated how he cried almost every day for two years because of loneliness after the death of her mother who he dearly loved.
“I couldn’t even attend my mother’s funeral. Because it was two long, lonely years, I cried every day for those two years, I felt so lonely. But I persevered, and had confidence in my talents. But in December of last year my mother, only 50 years old and my great supporter, also died. She accompanied me everywhere. By the way, she also played football, so I must have gotten my talents from her. (quietly) Before every match I pray for her. I couldn’t even be at her funeral, can you imagine how much that hurt Christopher Baah stated
