How Injury Ruined My Football Career - BBNaija Star, Boma Opens Up (Updated: Sunday, 24th October 2021, 06:32 AM)


Boma Akpore, a former Big Brother Naija housemate, has narrated how injury ended his football career.

In an interview with media personality, Chude Jideonwo, Boma said the situation made him fall into depression.

The ex-housemate said he never planned to leave football until injury forced him out.

“I went to Poland, played in a small club, put myself together. I went back to Belgium from where I had contact with an agent, now to Scottish Premiership. I had a small injury I was nursing.”

“I usually don’t get injuries. If I’ll get injured, maybe muscular injuries at the gym or something. I kicked the floor and that muscle, that was it, men. I was trying. They injected me in that spot while I was in Scotland.

“I had to sign, I was already there, man. Despite the injection, the pain wouldn’t leave. Whether climbing the stairs or riding a bike, I felt it. I tried that week, I couldn’t. That injury just never left. In all my games, I couldn’t run well.

“Everyone including the agent was disappointed. It wasn’t my fault. That pushed me into serious, heavy depression. I still get messages in my inbox saying, ‘I didn’t believe you would leave football after everything you did’.

“That injury was a career-ending injury. I packed my bag, left Scotland, and went back to Belgium to pack my other bag. I was back in the United States. 2017, March 8. That was the end of my career in football. My depression was bad. I would just wake up and sit on the floor. I’m not moving. Seven months. I didn’t want to do anything. My friend told me, ‘Bro, you can’t be living like this. There are people in Nigeria depending on you,” he said.
