Rashidi Yekini’s Daughter To Meet Portugal Club Over Father’s Foundation After Nigeria ‘Ignored’ Her

The daughter of late Africa Soccer legend, Rashidi Yekini, Yemisi, will this weekend be traveling to Portugal to hold talks with Portuguese club Victoria Setubal as regards her planned Foundation for her late dad.

Victoria Setubal is arguably the biggest foreign club Yekini played for in his active days. The club has been supportive of any move to immortalise their former hero who they fondly referred to as ‘Black god’.

In an interview with Premium Times, the Yekini’s lawyer, Jubril Mohammed, confirmed the planned trip by Yemisi to Portugal adding that the girl has resorted to seeking help outside the shores of the country as very little assistance has come from Nigeria as regards properly immortalising the former African Footballer of the Year.

“Yes, Yemisi should be in Portugal from the 25th of July; she plans to spend her vacation there and more importantly hold discussions with officials of Victoria Setubal on her planned Foundation for her late dad. She is not getting the desired help here so she has to go to where she is wanted,” the lawyer stated.
