Super Eagles striker Brown Ideye believes his reading culture has helped him in his playing career.
Ideye was spotted in Port Harcourt, South-South Nigeria helpimg in the promotion of a Mobile Library initiative.
“I am here to support the Mobile Library because I am a good reader and I love reading so when you see a project like this, you have to support it,” Ideye enthused to www.aclsports.com
“It is important for youths to read and such initiative makes it available for them for free and with this Mobile Library going around Port Harcourt to give books for free, I’ll say that it is a good thing and that is why I am here to support it,” he said of the initiative that has already seen thousands of books given away within five days of its inception.
The Tianjin TEDA forward shed more light on his reading culture
“As soon as I get my hands on any good book maybe at the airport when I’m travelling or when my Missus gives me one she likes, I pick them.
“Most times if they are books I like so much and I want to conclude on time, I take them to games and read them on (in the team coach) . I don’t dedicate any special season for reading, I read them as they come.”
With Nigeria’s 2018 World Cup qualifiers against Cameroon less than a month away, Ideye remains absolutely confident that the Super Eagles will make their sixth World Cup appearance in Russia next year.
“I am 100% sure we will be in Russia. I am convinced that we have all it takes to be there. With the players we have and support from the coaches, I believe we will be in Russia.”
