Munir Sada, a nine-year-old Nigerian, has joined Arsenal Football Kid Academy in London, England.
Pictures of the nine-year-old with an Arsenal document went viral, with many Nigerians expressing their delight at the news.
Sada was wearing an Arsenal shirt and was photographed with two women who were supposed to be his parents.
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 announced the signing 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.
Sada is claimed to have aspired to be a football legend like Lionel Messi since he was a child.
Arsenal, on the other hand, has made no official remark regarding the Nigerian’s return to the academy.
