Ferdinand loves to travel and enjoy different cultures, as he owns a soccer school in Kampala, Uganda, and has visited Nigerian a couple of times, and says the display of wealth in Lagos is amazing.

He said “In Lagos, I was struck by the extremes of wealth… I visited someone who had Plasma TVs hanging from every wall in the house. The opulence was unbelieveable. There’s a lot of money there, I just don’t know if it’s shared the way it should be”.
