    Kindly go dedicate yourself and career to God and do away with your heritage tradition, if you want to overcome this injury prone career. Lots of you don’t know that at certain age after grassroot football that alters starts fighting your careers. This applies to African players with strong ties to tradition of all sort. Tijani and Amoo are another GEMS that must seek the face of God else they’ll be termed injury prone from the blue. Just a spiritual directives and personal opinion.

      this has nothing to do with heritage tradition, what about Owen Hagrees of man united of those days, his heritage tradition too. My brother it is time and unforseen events that happened to him more so it was the coach that contributed to it too. The young man cakes from Gent having played all the games in their league and just the second day he signed for Leicester he was thrown into the starting line of the fa cup and ever since then he never Ndidi time to rest. Any slight injury he will rush him back to the team saying that he has doesn’t have another DM like him now that his injury is taking time to heal he is now giving up. See this life is not worth you killing ur self to impress others. You are only relevant to them when they are benefiting from you
