United States based Nigerian footballer, Raphael Ayagwa has revealed that it wasn’t hard for him to dump school for a footballing career
The FC Tulsa midfielder says he already developed passion for the game at a very young age even before he realized the benefits football offers
In an Instagram live session with Sportlens360, Ayagwa disclosed that he is a secondary school dropout and football was a major factor for that decision.
“Football contributed in me dropping out of school and it was a very easy decision for me to take”, he said.
The 22-year-old had stints with NPFL sides like Lobi Stars and Plateau United before his move to Lillestrom in Norway.
There were challenges for the youngster starting football professionally. “I was anxious and wanted to prove my worth and stamp my authority”, he said this about his start at Lobi Stars.
The start to a successful journey can be quite challenging but would be worth it at end as it is for Ayagwa who is currently enjoying life in the United States.
