Footballer Kenneth Omeruo Buys His Mother a Brand New Car as Mother’s Day Gift (PHOTOS)
Nigerian Footballer, Kenneth Omeruo has acquired a Toyota Camry salon car for his mother to celebrate her on Mother’s day.
The Kasimpasa FC defender who got married to his heartthrob few months ago, showed off the car on his Instagram page with the caption: HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY written on it.
In a 2014 interview, Kenneth Omeruo’s younger brother, Lucky Omeruo who plays for a football club in Malta, Pembroke Athleta FC, disclosed that unlike other parents, their mum greatly influenced their football career decision.
I understand most parents did not support their sons playing football during the 90s, forgetting that it’s not everybody that will be an accountant or lawyer. In fact, most children back then believed that without being a lawyer or doctor, you could never make it. However, I must thank our lovely mum for giving us everything to play the game. We never told our mum this was what we wanted to do, and it was people that went to meet her and told her what her sons were doing in school and during training with football.
I was surprised the day I saw my mum at our training session and that was the day she gave her blessing to what we were doing. Since that time, our mum never missed any final of ours, both in school, Shell Cup games and grassroots football. My father also supported us in any way he could, and we have been excelling by their blessings.
On their humble beginning, he said;
Kenneth Omeruo and I started playing football in our parents’ sitting room. We used to make goal post out of things, and we played anything round as ball. When we started playing around the street, school and all that, we only saw it as a means of fun, but Kenneth always talked about making a career out of it. His aim was to be an established player and anytime we went for games, he would play it as if that was his last. People looked at us anywhere we played; we grew up together, we were always together. We always did things together and we were always outstanding wherever we went. During training, our friends would not want us to play together because, together, we were unbeatable.
