Two Nigerian Footballers Who Hawked On The Streets Before Their Fame

Football players make a lot of money during their professional career. The likes of Peter Odemwingie and Victor Moses have earned so much money over the past twenty years. However, some of these football players were raised by parents who could not afford the good things in life. This is why there are a few Nigerian football players who hawked on the street in order to earn a living. Let us take a good look at some of them.

1. Wilfred Ndidi

The Leicester City midfielder grew up with his parents in Lagos, Nigeria. He has developed into one of the best defensive midfielders in the English Premier League. However, he used to hawk groundnut on the streets of Lagos when he was a child. This shows that we should never look down on anyone in life.

2. Victor Osimhen

He is another Nigerian football player whose story is absolutely incredible. The Napoli striker used to sell water on the streets of Lagos when he was a child. However, he has grown up to become the most expensive football player in Nigerian history.
