Patrice Evra visits Lagos for chess initiative

Manchester United and France legend Patrice Evra visited Lagos, Nigeria on Saturday to show support for a chess initiative under the famous Oshodi bridge – where he learnt how to play the sport from kids.

Chess In Slums, founded by Tunde Onakoya, is an enterprise set up to teach and unlock the potential in every child using chess educational resources and mentorship.

Patrice Evra had gone on social media on Friday to announce his first visit to the West African country. “Breaking news! Evra bus stop will stop to #Nigeria first time ever,” the 40-year-old tweeted.

Overwhelmed by his experience in Nigeria’s former capital city, the Champions League winner went on social media to revel in his visit.

“Checkmate, Evra bus stop #Nigeria! I’m soo impressed by those genius kids,” the onetime Red Devils stalwart wrote.
