Football is a game that has to do with talent, hardwork, and training; some footballers have however, decided to go spiritual, in order to ensure a successful career.
This time around, it is about the visiting of a popular Prophet, known as TB Joshua, who is known for predictions in both the political, and sports spheres.
To showcase his love for the round leather game, TB Joshua owns a football club, known as My People FC, from where several players have rose to become world stars.
Today, some famous footballers have attributed their success to Prophet TB Joshua, after visiting TB Joshua’s Synagogue, Church Of All Nations, for prayers.
According to 23-year-old Super Eagles midfielder, Ogenyi Onazi, the man behind his soaring success in his football career, is Prophet TB Joshua.
The Trabzonspor star, said this, while sharing with his fans a birthday wish to the Minister of God last year.
Onazi, shared an Instagram post, on June 12, 2015: “Happy birthday to you Daddy, you are a blessing to Nigeria, Africa, and the world entirely, we have nothing to give to you than to ask God to keep you younger every day.
“May God continue using more than he has done in the years back. You are a blessing to my life. Thank you sir!”
Ogenyi’s success in football, started when he joined a Lagos-based football club, My People FC, which was founded and funded single handedly by Prophet TB Joshua.
It was while playing at the Lagos club, that Onazi was discovered, and picked to represent Nigeria at the 2009 U-17 FIFA World Cup, before later moving to Europe.
Sani Shehu Emmanuel, rose to become famous, when he won the Silver boot at the 2009 FIFA U-17 World Cup, held in Nigeria. Emmanuel helped the Golden Eaglets to finish in second place at the tournament.
Just like Onazi, Emmanuel was discovered from My People FC, and picked to represent Nigeria at the 2009 U-17 FIFA World Cup, after an impressive display for his team at that time, My People FC, against the Under 17 team.
Before his move to Lazio, Emmanuel was an altar boy in Prophet T.B Joshua’s church, and was single handedly sent on trial in Italy, by the man of God.
Former Nigerian International, Joseph Yobo, reportedly visited the Synagogue Church of T.B. Joshua, for prayers, after suffering a hamstring injury in the 2010 Africa Cup of Nations.
He went on to lift the 2013 African Cup Of Nations, three years later, before retiring from International football. That was the only trophy he lifted as a Nigerian Player.
Former Nigerian International, Daniel Amokachi, once said in an interview: “I don’t go to church because of miracles, but when I went to Synagogue, I did see miracles with my eyes, but I never received any. The good thing was that I came out of that church knowing that Jesus exists.”
He continued: “Judging from the lifestyle I had in the past, for me to have found Jesus Christ from there, was a positive thing for me. And it was a turning point in my life. But you see, when you’re desperate, so many things can happen. I was even conned, because I was desperate to treat my injury.”
It was reported that Amokachi went to the Synagogue with a knee injury
Media reports in some quarters, claimed that Kanu went to the Synagogue church, when he had a heart problem. However, there are no video evidence, or pictures, to prove his presence at the church.
