Adebayo Akinfenwa To Create New Charity To Help Players Fight Through Racism

Adebayo Akinfenwa’s popularity comes from being known as the “world’s strongest soccer player.” According to Business Insider, his size is deceiving because Akinfenwa is kind, funny and charismatic.

As a teenager, Akinfenwa signed with Lithuanian side FK Atlantas but was racially abused by the club’s fans.

Instead of letting the “monkey chants” drive him away, he stayed and became a fan favorite.
