“But I never gave up because I knew I will come up stronger because of the passion of playing football.”

“Indeed I returned stronger after the injury and moved on,” he added.

Young players should believe

Eric Ouma also urged young players to always believe in themselves and never give up in order to fulfill their dreams.

“Just believe in yourself and since you are young you still have that energy.”

“Work hard now so that when you become old you will only be telling stories. It is within you and remains focused.”
