When preparation meets opportunity success becomes the inevitable end product. Most often than not elite athletes employ personal trainers to put them in the right physical condition as well as giving them that sharpness and edge over their competitors.
Michail Antonio of English Premier League outfit, West Ham United falls into this category, where he has been working with Ghanaian-born British trainer Frederick Okyere (Coach Freddy) since 2015.
The 30-year-old scored all four of West Ham’s goals as the Hammers thrashed Norwich at Carrow Road to cap his first senior hat trick with a top drawer individual performance.
His first and final goals were both close-range finishes, while his second and third were netted with his head – his goals has done much for West Ham in their bid for Premier League survival following an abysmal start to the campaign.
Antonio’s feat on Saturday was tremendously impressive, although he’s not the first footballer in Premier League history to reach such a number.
In fact, the Englishman is actually one of 27 players to score four in a single Premier League game, while only a handful have gone one step further and netted five.
Whiles the player will take all the praise for his efforts one person who will sit back and sip a chilled drink to look at his product/trainee bask in glory is none other than the Ghanaian-born British trainer Frederick Okyere.
Some of the players Coach Freddy trains include the following:
Michail Antonio – West Ham
Andros Townsend – Crystal Palace
Axel Tuanzebe – Manchester United
Nathan Redmond – Southampton
Aaron wan Bissaka – Manchester United
Tariq Lamptey- Brighton and Hove Albion
Eddy Nketiah – Arsenal
Coach Freddy is a self-motivated, reliable and well-presented football coach with vast experience of coaching at both Fulham and Brentford FC all in England.
