    There are some talented footballers like in Ghana who hv gone wasted but with you, God placed you where you are and made you a rich footballer bcs he knows you hv charitable heart, you were not just called to be a footballer but to bless and save lives, you will own more businness outside football, some players lack and struggle with money after they retire but that will not be you, God's goodness and blessings shall follow you all the rest of your life and you shall keep blessing but just a word of advice, people in the leadership are jealous of your blessings and want to bring you down by always pushing you to the wall to act stupidly but please control your anfer and let God battle for you and you will always be seen as a winner, keep your good worjs up son. Remain blessed
