The inspiring story of a devoted father
During a recent session with Aljazeera TV, Ola Aina narrated the story of his July 2014 debut for Chelsea FC and mentioned how his dad had to sell his car just to support his career. Read that part of his story below;
"The car just stopped in the middle of Vauxhall (in central London), and we were just stranded.
My dad sold the car on the spot and then he put me on the train. He came on the train with me because I hadn't really used trains like that before, so it wasn't really too familiar. He came with me all the way to Chelsea training ground, made sure I got into my changing room, and then went all the way back home again.
All those sacrifices they [made] is fuel for me to strive and to do well and repay them in ways that they can't imagine."
