Ex-Nigerian goalkeeper turns chauffeur in England
Super Falcons former goalkeeper at the 2007 Women’s World Cup held in China, Rachael Ayegba has turned to a bus driver in England.
Ayegba, who was also part of the Super Falcons squad to the 2006 and 2008 African Women’s Nations Cup is in the middle of a year’s training, and she currently drives the number 185, shuttling between Lewisham and Victoria.
The 35-year old shotstopper moved to England in 2018 and has since reckoned that driving a bus and playing in goal have a lot in common, which is about safety first and about not making a mistake.
“When you are trying to save the ball, you need safe hands. But there are ten others on your side, she was quoted on Evening Standard.
“When you drive a bus, you are on your own.”
“Mentally you have to be 100% ready, if you are a goalkeeper the defenders can help you. You can’t make any mistakes driving a bus.”
Ayegba, a former PK-35 Vantaa goalkeeper for eleven years works for Go-Ahead, the bus and train giant that operates about a fifth of the capital’s buses on behalf of Tfl.
