Yaw Dabo brings Arsenal scout to Ghana to monitor players of his

As part of plans to clinch deals for youngsters in his academy, Ghanaian actor Samuel Yaw Dabo welcomed Arsenal scout Phil Antwi to Ghana.

Arriving in the nation on Wednesday, Antwi is a 2020 recruit to Arsenal's scouting department, where he served as the lead scout for the U12s and U14s.

Yaw Dabo met the scout at the Kotoka International Airport and gave him a brief introduction before discussing his objectives with the media.

“I'm here to observe the Yaw Dabo Sports Academy.” He has a few talented players, hopefully with a path to Europe, Antwi remarked.

Yaw Dabo found an Ashanti Region soccer academy.

Yaw Dabo obtained sixteen parcels of land last year to build a sports facility that would house his soccer academy.

The large parcel of land is located at Yawbarima Krom in the Atwima Mponua district of the Ashanti Region, with works already ongoing.

The actor revealed last year that the main reason for establishing a football academy is to support talented footballers who are less privileged.

Dabo said he aimed to give back to society and often goes to orphanages and villages to recruit players for his academy.

“I have the Dabo Soccer Academy because we have to support others. That's my dream because, when you get money, you have to give it to somebody because everybody needs help,” he told Marca.

“Me, too. I need help. My brother needs help. So I want to give back to my society to support others. I go to orphanages, and I go to the villages to bring talented players to everybody to see that in Ghana we have very talented players.

“A lot of good players are in the academy and go to school. I have workers, coaches, and caterers to support the football team. I have everybody. I came to Europe to find a solution to support my academy.”

Despite being an actor, Yaw Dabo’s foray into football administration has been very impressive following his establishment of a soccer academy.
