“I am happy that the Airtel Rising Stars programme plans to benefit young soccer players less than 17 years who in my opinion are the basis of the sport’s success,” he said.

He expressed thanks to Airtel for coming up with the programme that he described as exceptionally essential to the development of football in Africa. When I asked him at the dinner about the prospect of the youngsters including those from Sierra Leone, he said: “Just like all the other kids they have a great opportunity to learn from this clinic and they can go back home with much more inspiration and skills,” he noted.
