The most decorated player in English football history makes it onto our list by virtue of the fact that his paternal grandfather is from Sierra Leone.
Not being a footy expert, I can’t waffle on for hours about Ryan Giggs’ dexterity on the pitch, the mastery of his corner kick, and such like. Fortunately, I do know a few people whose knowledge of football is better than mine. So I’ll let one of them tell you why, in his humble opinion, Giggsy rocks…
And there you have it.
I am trying to compile a complete, or as complete as I can get it, of famous Sierra Leoeneans. Good luck with yours. Are you interested in non-British? If so, don’t forget Andrew Young and Spike Lee.
Thanks for dropping by! Yes, I’m interested in as many as I can find – wherever they are! Thanks for the heads-up on Andrew and Spike; have you got Sahr Ngaujah (star of the Fela musical on Broadway) on your list?
I do now! Thanks.
