« When I go back to where I grew up, I can see it in the eyes of the people, especially the children. They are proud of what I have achieved. I am like a role model for them. So it’s my duty to do my very best, to inspire them positively through my attitude, and my actions.” »
«It’s important that we, as players, are being committed. Off the pitch, we can also make a difference, we can convey messages, to try to bring some warmth and support to those who need it.»
«As professional footballers we are always in the spotlight. And sometimes, You start being afraid to commit to something, in case it might be misinterpreted. The UNFP’s stance on commitment to society reassured me, and gave me the confidence I needed to take that step forward. We all have a role to play.»
«Being able to play football professionally is a rare privilege. Off the pitch, I wanted to take advantage of the opportunity to make a real difference, and to accomplish some wonderful things that would benefit other people.»
