Legendary Cameroonian defender, Rigobert Song, has paid a surprised visit to pupils and students of schools in the Nkenglikok neighborhood in Yaoundé-Cameroon’s capital city.
The Olympic Lions of Cameroon gaffer spent the early hours of this Tuesday, July 14 with young Cameroonians in the Nursery, primary and secondary sections of the different schools in the neighborhood.
Photos on Song’s official Twitter handle this Tuesday displayed the erstwhile Liverpool defender handing gifts of buckets, hydro alcoholic hand sanitizers among other items to the different school authorities.
“It is with pleasure that I offer this little support to the schools in Nkenglikok. Health is wealth”, Song accompanied the photos with this message.
Considered one of Cameroon’s greatest defender of all times, the record-man is back in the country these days and doing his best to ensure he gets closer to his people.
His move surely takes him closer to a handful of his mentees.
Song had a successful career, fitting to inspire the next generation of Cameroon and African defenders. The Ex-TKC and FC Metz sweeper made over 600 appearances for 10 clubs across the world in a 14-year career upon graduation from the Brasserie Football Academy. He won two African cup of nations titles, appeared at five FIFA World Cup tournaments.
He retired from football in 2010.
He has since managed the intermediate, and Olympic national teams of Cameroon plus a stint as the team manager of the senior national selection.
