Renown singer Bebe Cool's son Alpha Thierry Ssali could be Uganda's' next biggest football icon despite criticisms from a few biased fans.
Bebe Cool seems to have identified his sons' talent right from childhood as he named him after former Arsenal star Thierry Henry whose skills are still remembered all over the world.
Recently, the singer's wife Zuena Kirema posted on her social media platforms praising improvement in Alpha's footballing skills but she was quickly silenced by fans who claimed that her son doesn't qualify to feature for Katwe United FC and this left unanswered questions one being how good is Bebecools' son?
Currently, Alpha Ssali is the captain at Proline Academy U-17.
Mujib Kasule, the owner and coach at Proline soccer academy describes Ssali as an impressive player pledging the club's efforts to promote him to the senior team next season.
"As Proline, we are so much delighted about the development and progress of Alpha. He is such an impressive, good player, although he is still learning. We are going to graduate him from the junior team to the senior team," Kasule stated.
Recently, Bebe Cool boasted about the performance of his son stressing that he never regrets his fatherly decisions.
"I keep reviewing Alpha Thierry Ssalis' progress when it comes to his relationship with the ball in comparison to my expectations at this point. I appreciate the decision I made as a father and the effort Proline Soccer Academy has put in so far despite the conditions under which our footballers persevere in Uganda and Africa as a whole," Bebe Cool stated.
The youngster also reportedly got a chance to train with the Arsenal football academy when he had traveled to England in a company of his father.
"I was happy to train with Arsenal soccer academy although I would be happier if I had visited Manchester United football academy, the environment and facilities there are first class and I don't regret the time I spent there. I felt more encouraged and motivated to go on and on," Ssali said in an interview.
He added that his meeting with Spanish star Isco was another turning point in his footballing career.
"Meeting Iscos is still a memorable moment. His words and advice keep me moving and whenever I am down and I recall, I feel recharged." Ssali added.
The exciting left-footed player started his career at Proline Soccer Academy and featured on the wall of fame way back in 2016 when he won the PSA player of the year award.
Ssali's role models are Arsenals' Henrick Mykitaryan and Uganda Crane's Farouk Miya.
