Savannah, small house, tall grass in front of the house, sunset Sadieu leaves the house, looking around so that no one will notice him at home, in his hands is a sports bag, he takes several steps towards the grass and a few more times looking around himself, hides a sports bag in tall grass. Then he walks a long path along the path between the houses towards sunset. After some time, he reaches another unprepossessing house where his best friend lives. Sadieu asks him for a few dollars on a bus ride to Dakar. He, having thought, gives him these 3 dollars. Morning, dawn, 6 a.m. The sun penetrates Sadier’s room. Sadieu wakes up, washed and runs to the bus stop. He gets on a bus and rides on the road to Dakar, he is a little scared and excited. Sadier gets off the bus and asks how to get to the football club. He finds this football club and the coach asks to immediately show on the field that he can already Stadium, Sadier, ball, feints with the ball The coach is satisfied and says to Sadieux: “Boy, we will take you to our team” Sadieu’s parents found him and demanded that he return home before he graduated from high school. When, finally, this happened, the whole village collected money for him on the road to Dakar And finally, Sadieu was about to see the first full-fledged viewing, in which about 300 people participated The show began for Sadieux very badly: he was laughed at, because he did not look like a football player, Sadieu had very strange shorts, and his boots fell apart and were fastened with wire But, since Sadier already played very well then, he was taken to the team and this was the beginning of his football career After some time, Sadieux was invited to France to a famous club. Mom Sadieux did not even believe him when he called and said that he would now train in France. Mom: “What else is France? Where is it ??? You train in Senegal! Sadieux: “Mom, I’m still in Europe !! It’s true!!! Sadier talks about his family: in my family no one loved football. My mother chased me every time she saw me play It was hard for me because I felt a little lonely. I did not understand why I was not allowed to live a dream. Sometimes I came home with a friend because I knew they could beat me at home for not being in class I was hungry, I had to work in the field under the scorching sun. I was going through hard times, playing football barefoot. I did not have an education and many other things. But now, I earn enough money by football and I can help my people. (Liverpool) Now I am a striker of the famous English club. I meet people, go to a mosque and donate to charity  I built schools and a stadium. I provide people living in poverty with clothes, shoes, food. Every month I give 70 euros to each resident of one of the poorest areas of Senegal – the money goes to their family budget. Why should I want 10 Ferrari? Why do I need 20 hours with diamonds or 2 personal jets? What will these things do for me or for the world? Will the world and I be happier from this luxury? I suppose not. I do not need to flaunt expensive cars, mansions, travels and planes. I prefer that my people receive a piece of what life has given me.
