Remember The African Footballer Who Ran Mad After his Failed Ajax Move? See What's Happening to him

It's such a good thing to see your brother or sister step out of the family and become the cynosis of all. Kassem Yebsaya was invited to represent his fatherland by the national team in 1996.


Kaseem Yebsaya is in the Nigeria U23 soccer team which made Nigeria the winner of the Olympics in Atlantis. Kassem Yebsaya was invited to represent his fatherland by the national team in 1996.

Kaseem Yebsaya was a member of Nigeria's U23 soccer team that qualified Nigeria for the Olympics that we won in Atlanta eventually. Kaseem's success in the Nigerian qualifications was not ignored as he was snapped in January 1996 by the Turkish Super-Lig side Denizlispor.


His game ended up playing about eight games for Denizlispor before Ajax Amsterdam knocked on him when he was invited to trial. After winning the Club of Europe, Ajax needs to be revived since they lost most of their great players like Kanu Nwankwo, Clearance Seedorf, Finidi George, Edwin Van der Sar, etc.

Tijani Babangida was part of the new players then signed by Roda JC who passed the Ajax audition at the U.S. Olympic Summer Olympics with Nigeria's success.


Kaseem left for Ajax with the expectation of concluding an arrangement with the club, continuing the rich background of Nigerians with so much excitement and determination. Kassem Yebsaya was upset, and he got a knee injury and failed the drugs during his trial and was ordered to leave the team's camp immediately.


Kaseem was confirmed mad because he had been realised that Ajax couldn't sign him because of his health concerns, and he failed the medicals. He said Tijani Babangida was welcoming Kaseem in his home for three months after he began to have a health condition when he became homeless in the Netherlands before being eventually deported back to Lagos.

He moved to Kaduna to the street, before moving to Takum in Taraba, Ubale also said. He was seen displaying an act of madness through the streets. He was finally healed and he became a local trainer in his country following many therapies, both locally and orthodoxly.


In 2018, he began his career as coach and led his local government team of the Takum Local Government Club to the quarter-final events of the Taraba State Governors' Cup, according to his elder brother Wukari Yebsaya.


We learned that his character had shifted a few months back. My younger brother recently called and told me that he (Kaseem) wanted medical treatment again. I went to visit him at home, thus. I worked out by the way we spoke that something was wrong as we sat together, and began chatting.


Wukari told BSN Sports, a revered nigerian sports platform that we were expected to take him back to Kaduna. "When he was in Takum, I became aware of his ill-health issue. I went to see him, but I was surprised to see him weathered and to utter things that I can't understand.

The video interview with him was filmed, which I posted on my facebook page in search of financial support to help him rehabilitate. A sad reality, we hope the NFF helps Kaseem Yabsaya as he dares to need it as we write this story.
