Michail Antonio proves to be role model for Tooting & Mitcham academy players

Posted on

Two of our academy players from Tooting & Mitcham were recently featured on Sky Sports talking about their role models in the football industry. At a time where the Black Lives Matter has been highlighted in the media, this video shows how black footballers are now proving to be role models to a range of individuals including some of our students who are currently working hard to progress themselves within the industry. Kevin Turbi and Thibault Abie, Tooting & Mitcham and VLUK students, say that footballers like Michail Antonio are role models to them and as Michael came from the same background as them, working his way up from Tooting & Mitcham to West Ham, has given them determination to work hard to be the best that they can be.

Congratulations to Kevin and Thibault for their representation of the club and for being great ambassadors for VLUK.
