Super Eagles And Ajax Defender Calvin Bassey Explains How he Almost Quit Football at 15

Earlier, Sports Brief had reported how Super Eagles defender who currently plays for Ajax Calvin Bassey explained that he almost quit football years back when he was a 15-year-old boy before Leicester City offered him a chance.

Calvin Bassey was born in Italy, bu his parents later moved to England where the Nigerian star was hoping to combine his education with football.

In many nations in the world, the target of all parents is to make sure that their children go to schools and come out in flying colours and that was what Bassey's parents wanted.

However, things were difficult for Calvin Bassey as his main focus then was to play football and that dream was almost crushed when he was 15.
