From a humble start, Stephen Sowu, teammate No. 2 in the MTN soccer Academy reality show, has risen to become the new captain of the house, dislodging Rapheal Dugbatey Jnr. from the enviable position.
The 18-year-old striker hails from Akasti in the Volta Region and he is a product of Soccer Learners Football Club. As the dream of every young footballer, Sowu has his sight on securing a professional contract at any top flight European Club, preferably Chelsea FC.
He also looks forward to emerging as tops in the current MTN soccer reality show.
Dansoman-based Liberty Professionals is the team he aspires to join on the local scene to launch his career to stardom.
Sowu is a fanatic of Inter Milan's manager Jose Mourinho, and describes him as someone who inspires him a lot.
He is also an admirer of Chelsea and Cote d'Ivoire's striker Didier Drogba.
