Former Super Eagles captain Mikel Obi says he is keen to create a pathway for the youths to succeed through sports, using his global connections to help talented young Nigerians, not just in football, but also in basketball and tennis.
Mikel started out as an academy player in Jos, Plateau State and rose to the highest level, leading Nigeria to both the World Cup and Olympic Games.
The 35-year-old former Chelsea midfielder, who is one of only three Nigerians to have won the prestigious UEFA Champions League trophy, is ready to use his new Back2Base programme to uplift hundreds of other young talented Nigerians.
The maiden Back2Base programme is scheduled for the University of Lagos, Sports Centre, Yaba from June 9 to 11.
