“Our time we were lucky because there was no social media.  It’s all about the passion. Looking at players during my time like Attram, Laryea Kignston and Razak all came through colts’ football.

“We were not doing what Cristiano Ronaldo is doing for us to even want to be like them. I noticed one thing that through the passion and hard work the money will come.”

“But today the young ones who are coming if you are they think about the money before the passion. If you think that way you will never make it in life.”

I advise the young players to work hard, be passionate and be focus and that is all I can say”.
