AS part of a growing partnership between the Guyana Football Federation (GFF) and the Denmark Football Union (DBU) with support from UEFA Assist, Barcelona forward Martin Braithwaite was unveiled as the goodwill ambassador at the Marriott Hotel on Wednesday.
According to Braithwaite, whose father, Keith Braithwaite is Guyanese, it is important that young persons whether it be in the field of football or general life be focused on their goals.
“I have seen in life, we try to protect the people we love by telling them not to follow their dreams because we are afraid to see them getting hurt, but, by doing so, we are actually crushing a lot of dreams. We should push, especially the youths to follow their dreams and work because we don’t know who we are talking to, they maybe the next big thing”, the 31-year-old stated.
GFF President Wayne Forde echoed similar sentiments as he underscored that players should not believe their dreams are impossible, and he also hopes Braithwaite gets to reconnect with this Guyanese family on the visit.
Over the next few days, Braithwaite who currently plays as a forward for Barcelona and Denmark, is expected to meet the Minister of Culture, Youth and Sport, Charles Ramson Jr, participate in a friendly futsal match and also visit his family in Charlestown.
