Munir Sada, a Nigerian nine-year-old, has joined the Arsenal Football Kid Academy.
Pictures of the little footballer wearing an Arsenal shirt and posing with two women who are believed to be his parents have gone popular on the internet.
Yunus Abdallah, an Information Officer at the Kaduna State Department of Public Affairs, wrote on Facebook that the nine-year-old is a native of Zaria, Kaduna State.
Arsenal FC has acquired the services of a nine-year-old Nigerian. Munnir Muhammed Sada, a native of Zaria Local Government in Kaduna State, is anticipated to play for Arsenal FC’s junior team,” he said.
I’ve always wanted to be a football legend like Lionel Messi, Sada remarked.
Arsenal, on the other hand, has made no public statement.
He’ll be hoping to follow in the footsteps of Nigerians like Alex Iwobi and Kanu Nwankwo, who have both played for the Premier League club at various periods.
