Peter Olayinka Once Drank Garri To Go To Trainning by reportminds: 10:13am On Oct 09
Slavia Prague striker, Peter Olayinka, says he had a rough beginning as a young aspiring footballer.

The new Super Eagles invitee explained that he had little parental support, adding that his father didn’t think a career in football was possible.

“At first my dad didn’t support me,” he told Brilla FM.

According to him, things were tough to the extent that he could barely get food to eat before going for practice.

He said, “I was on the streets for a very long time, things weren’t easy. I suffered mostly growing up; things were difficult.

“I would drink garri and kuli-kuli or go on an empty stomach after practice. But I kept my focus and would pray for a breakthrough.

“Later he noticed I could make a living from it and he became my number one fan. He bought me playing kits and my boots.”

The 23-year-old is expected to make his debut for Nigeria on October 13 against Brazil at the National Stadium in Singapore.

Olayinka recently hit target against Inter Milan in the Champions League to become the first Nigerian to score on his Champions League debut since Yakubu Aiyegbeni’s hat-trick for Maccabi Haifa against Olympiakos in September 2002.

Better than nothing, Biologically, the stomach doesn't recognize the kind of food you feed it. It just want to be fed with something. That you eating chicken today doesn't mean your stomach is super neat than folks still soaking garri. See that Lexus down my siggy

Abeg who never drink garri before.. One thing about success is DAT, any one who attends this height must become a motivational speaker with alot of stories to tell.. Who told u dat drinking garri os evil. Sorry, but there r people right now who just need a hand full of garri to survive.. Spare us this garri matters, just thank God grace located u during ur struggle days not grave.. God bless all our hussles.. Please when u become a success tomorrow, dont say things DAT will make others who r passing through that particular phase feel they aint lucky or gracefull in life. Every thing in life is according to God's plan

cool

I'm happy that Peter Olayinka finally got recognized. This should be done for all pur players who fought tooth and nail through our devilish sport and economic climate to get to the highest stage of professional football.

Instead of running after spoilt kids like Tammy Abraham who were raised by another system and always embarass them. The English football team can decide what they want since they raised him and he feels more at home there.



We always want to reap where we haven't sown instead of looking inwards and developing our talents. The snub by Victor Moses should have taught these incompetent fools a lesson.
