The Daily Drool: Saido Berahino

30 Mar

Saido Berahino22 year old West Brom striker Saido has had an incredible life. He was born in Burundi, and sadly, his father was killed in the civil war there in 1997. 10 year old Saido made his way alone to Birmingham, England fleeing the war in the hope of being reunited with his mother and siblings who had already been granted asylum. He couldn’t find his family on arrival and was placed in a foster home. The authorities eventually found his mother and administered a DNA test to prove their relationship. His love of the sport helped him integrate into English society and he signed to West Brom at age 11. This kid has certainly lived a lot in a short time! He has represented England at the U16, U17, U18, U19, U20 and U21 levels.
