It would not take long before Global Sport Matters discovered that extravagant passion, and would have him for over two years writing opinion, long-form articles on youth football, academies and health-related pieces.

Spurred on by the love for the unthinkable and moments of magic in the game, he soon resorted to writing betting previews on a remote basis for BetClever, a sportsbook based in Swansea. It is not just the fact that he calls tips covering every possible market most punters clamour for, but it is the uniqueness and directness of these pieces that tips the scales.

A B.A holder in Linguistics (African and Asian Languages), Emmanuel has risen to prominence in the sports journalism sphere thanks to his glowing panache on Nigerian football strutting his stuff for All Nigeria Soccer, Naija Football Plus, Babagol and the likes.

If he's not found in his study thinking of the very next 'controversial' story to break, you'd be sure to find him watching his favourite team, Manchester United (whisper it silently that they've not been the same side since Sir Alex Ferguson walked).
