    “My journey to being a world-famous soccer player wasn’t easy. The war started right from my father’s house in far-away Port Harcourt, some decades ago. My father actually wanted me to be a roadside mechanic”.

    With these words, former Super Eagles of Nigeria and AC Milan of Italy player, Taribo West, told his story of growing up.

    Narrating the story further, he said his mum disapproved of his father’s wish that he should be a mechanic.

    His words: “My mother resisted strongly. She begged and begged him to allow me have, at least, a secondary school education, but he refused.

    “The struggle led me to running away from my father’s house in Port Harcourt, many years ago, at a very tender age, to Lagos, and there stated my struggles”.

    Taribo West went on: “But, I thank God that all that is history now. I am the rejected stone that later became the corner stone of the house”. When asked what business he ventured into after retiring from football, he said: “After quitting football, I ventured into football academy, philanthropy and missionary work.

    “I run a football academy in Lagos where we discover and train young talents for European clubs.

    “I am involved in philanthropic works where we assist so many indigent students and business men and women.

    Taribo West played for the Super Eagles between 1994 and 2006.

    During his illustrious career, he played for big European clubs like Auxerre, Inter Milan, AC Milan, Derby County among others, winning many laurels.

    Taribo West played for the Super Eagles of Nigeria at the 1998 FIFA World Cup in France, 2000 African Cup of Nations in Ghana/Nigeria, 2002 African Cup of Nations in Mali, 2002 FIFA World Cup in Korea/Japan, etc.
