Striker’s joy at promotion
Affectionately known as the ‘Beast’, Wycombe Wanderers striker Adebayo Akinfenwa has praised God after helping guide the club to Championship football.
Akinfenwa played a pivotal role in the EFL League One campaign, which resulted in The Choirboys reaching a Wembley play-off against Oxford United. With no fans there to enjoy the moment due to the coronavirus lockdown, they prevailed 2-1.
In the wake of the Buckinghamshire club’s rise to the second tier of English football, Akinfenwa was quick to praise God.
He said God ‘made the impossible possible’ before commenting that just four years ago he was ‘technically unemployed’ and was inviting Premier League champion manager Jurgen Klopp to sign him for Liverpool! Akinfenwa added: “First and foremost, I want to thank God. Because today he made the impossible possible.
