Ex- goalkeeper of the Nigerian women’s national football team, Rachael Aladi Ayegba, has become a bus driver in the United Kingdom.
The former super Falcon’s goalkeeper Ayegba played in the 2007 Women’s World Cup, the 2006 and 2008 African Women’s Championships and had an 11-year stint as a pro in Finland, winning the league title in 2013 with PK-35 Vantaa.
The report has it that she now drives the number 185 between Lewisham and Victoria.
Ayegba who is currently 35 told the Standard UK that, “when you are trying to save the ball, you need safe hands. But there are ten others on your side”.
“When you drive a bus, you are on your own.”
Ayegba revealed that her favourite player is Cristiano Ronaldo, adding that she doesn’t play football anymore, though she has a coaching license.
“I am old. You have to know when to stop”, she stated.
