Football, as we all know, is one of the most famous sports in the world, with the largest fan base. It is loved by many, which is why you can see children and adults playing it on the streets in their neighbourhood.
The football game has produced talented players like; Neymar, Totti, Paolo, Zinedine, Pele, Samuel Eto, Ronaldinho, Jay Jay Okocha, Christian Ronaldo, Kanu Nwankwo, Luis Figo, Obafemi Martin's and others
Football talent should be found at an early age so that it can be developed into a professional player. The desire to scout for kids who are talented in many fields and then develop that talent is a significant difference between the Western world and Africa. This is yet another reason why Africans cannot be linked to countries such as Germany, Spain, Brazil, Argentina, France, and others in the sport of football. Over the years, these countries have created a slew of celebrities.
However, one of our former international footballers, Kanu Nwankwo, also known as Papilo, chose to open an academy after retiring from active football. The Papilo fc academy was founded with the aim of developing young talented children into professional footballers.
He recently posted photos of his academy's players on his Instagram profile, saying that "winning is our character."
This is one of the ways he is repaying society for the opportunity he was given during his successful football career. His academy has produced several players who have represented England at the youth level.
Kanu Nwankwo also founded a heart foundation that bears his name. Papilo is unquestionably a boon to this generation.
May the almighty God bless you and give you all of your heart's desires for your selfless service to mankind.
Check out the photos he shared on his Instagram page below.
