Ghanaian comic actor Yaw Dabo has expressed the valuable lessons he learned from his recent trip to Europe, where he had the opportunity to visit renowned football clubs and became a viral sensation in Spain due to his unwavering support for Real Madrid.
During his trip, Dabo, the owner of Dabo Soccer Academy, had the honour of being interviewed by the popular Spanish sports newspaper Marca following Real Madrid’s 1-1 draw with Manchester City, which drew widespread attention.
Prior to that, he paid visits to notable clubs such as PSG, Ajax, and Dortmund, where he met former Black Stars coach Otto Addo.
Dabo revealed that his time at Dortmund, in particular, proved to be highly educational. “I have learned a lot, especially when I went to Dortmund. I attended a classroom session, thanks to Otto Addo who took me there. The knowledge he imparted to me was truly remarkable,” Dabo said, as reported by Ghanaweb.
He further shared, “Otto Addo showed me how to provide counselling to players after a match. Identifying their mistakes, areas for improvement, and creating specialized training programs to enhance their skills, including extensive use of video analysis. I discovered that becoming a star player requires rigorous training.”
Upon his return to Ghana, Dabo, 24, received a warm reception, marking the culmination of his enlightening European adventure.
