Getting Scouted

I was about 14 years old when I was approached by Sparta of Rotterdam, which is the smaller team in Rotterdam, and they asked if I wanted to join them. I asked my dad, and he said that the reason I came to Holland was to study, so I had to concentrate on my studies, and not on the football… which put an end to that enquiry.

Then, a year later, at the age of 15, I was approached by Feyenoord! So I went back to my dad and, thankfully, he said yes ‘as long as you can combine it with your school work’. I told him I could, so he agreed with me going to Feyenoord, which was really great.

So here I am, a 15-year-old boy from Ghana, getting a trial at Feyenoord! I did a trial, and I got accepted, and one thing led to the other!
