Hi everyone. Here’s a quick season update for all of you watching. This video is to give you an idea of how I’ve been training, the content of my sessions and a general review of my season so far
A rough transcript from the video with some additional comments.
Back in mid-July, I began with pre-season training. I had 1-on-1 trainings with my coach Moses in Budapest. He’s a close friend to me and an ex-Liberian international who played for Budapest Honved many years ago. So we were training together 1-2 times a day, with lots of gruelling fitness exercises.
I was combining this with general technique and physical training.
The seasons started well, the last three games I’ve scored twice. My club is now playing the first team of Ajax, yes Ajax. In the 2nd round of the KNVB. Match was supposed to played in the Amsterdam Arena, but instead got changed to the Olympic stadium. Televised live on fox sports.
If you’re wondering where I currently play, I play for a team called JOS Watergraafsmeer in the 4th tier. Most players are former members of professional clubs. Players here are ex-Ajax, Vitesse, Gronigen, Utrecht, a player from FC Köln, the list goes on.
Other than that, I’ve also had to find some ways to support myself financially. My parents can’t pay for everything, so I’ve taken some initiative. While I was not training, I worked to set up Effective Training – which let’s players train like a professional whenever and wherever they are. I’ve teamed up with some very good players and coaches to create this. You can check out the website here at www.traineffective.com
If you want to see more or interested in getting Effective for a player or a team, just send me a message.
So once again, I created this video so you could get a quick update of what I’m doing. I also do these in order for someone to take notice and hopefully give me a chance to play professionally, anywhere in the world. For more information, contact me.
For those of you wondering, unfortunately I was not picked for the Ajax match; but not surprising given the fringe player role I’ve had with my time the last two years at JOS. It really would have been a dream come true to step on that pitch, so it’s a big bummer, especially considering that I worked harder than anyone else not just in this years pre-season, but out of anyone in the past two years. One thing is for certain, I will be leaving the club in the winter break and finding a team and coach that believe in my potential. Most likely that will be outside of The Netherlands, but I’ll save that for another post…
