It’s a dream of any footballer to start their career at such an age where more than half of the population are still confused regarding their career, some are still studying and some are just dreaming about their future.

Pick any young footballer and ask them about their goal and ambition, I’d assure you that most of them wants to become famous as soon as possible. For that one must have an audacity to do something outrageous that can go in history books.
