Sportsbet.io lands deal with football icon Kanu Nwankwo

A new dawn has begun with one of the world’s biggest crypto sports betting sites, Sportsbet.io as Nwankwo Kanu became one of the brand’s star-studded global ambassadors. After inking a four-year deal with Sportsbet.io, Kanu is now set to feature in a wide array of promotions and special events. This will bring in more followers and punters into the fold with Kanu’s influence and impact.

King Kanu, more known as Papilo to his millions of fans, is one of the most decorated football players in history. This is why there is no doubt that his presence will yield bigger profits for Sportsbet.io and help create a bigger community of punters all over the world.

Career highlights

Kanu’s big success in football made him one of the top Nigerian icons to ever play the game. He has played for various football clubs such as the Dutch side Ajax and Serie A giants Inter Milan before he moved on to compete in England for Arsenal, West Bromwich Albion, and Portsmouth.

The Nigerian star was known for his dedication on the pitch, and he was praised for his leadership on and off the game. Kanu was loved by the masses and became an instant icon in every club he played for throughout his career.

Stint with Arsenal

After playing for Ajax and Inter Milan, Kanu went on to compete for Arsenal in 1999 for £4.15 million. He made his debut against Sheffield United in the FA Cup where he quickly showed his football prowess on both ends by stealing the ball and making a key assist for a winning goal.

Kanu was praised by legendary Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger, and that began his huge exploits as the star was given a big break with the North London squad. He became known for his scoring galore in the club and was soon a fan favourite.

The Nigerian star played a total of six seasons with Arsenal, and all of those were fruitful runs as he enjoyed two title wins especially in the 2001-02 and 2003-04 seasons. In 198 matches played for Arsenal, Kanu finished with a total of 44 goals, with 30 of those coming in from his big games in the Premier League.

International career with Nigeria

Aside from his success with Arsenal, Kanu has also enjoyed a big break in his time with the Nigerian national football team. He led Nigeria to a huge win in the 1993 FIFA U-17 World Cup, where he played six games and scored five goals. He later won a gold medal for Nigerian U2 in the 1996 Games.

Kanu was also a part of the national team from 1994 to 2011, and he played a huge role in helping the team secure a spot in the African Cup of Nations in 2000, where they finished as a runner-up.

By the end of his football stint, Kanu played a total of 86 games with the national team and scored 12 goals for them. He remains as one of the top icons in the squad, and for good reason. Kanu is a big role model and inspiration among young and aspiring players, this is why it is a large win for Sportsbet.io to have him as an ambassador.

Legacy

Kanu is known to be one of the few players to win the Premier League, FA Cup, Champions League, UEFA Cup, and a Gold Medal. He is praised for being one of the best African players in history. He is also one of the players who played a lot of games as a substitute, coming off the bench for a total of 118 games.

Aside from his football glory, Kanu is a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador. His own experience with a congenital heart defect led him to help others in need through the Kanu Heart Foundation, which was established in 2000. The program tackled homelessnesss and now has five hospitals in Africa with the goal to treat children who have heart diseases, and the star believes he can do more with Sportsbet.io.

What made Kanu sign with Sportsbet.io

Aside from the benefits of his program in tying up with Sportsbet.io, Kanu has a lot of reasons for joining the team. Kanu believes in Sportsbet.io’s campaign, and it was seen in the ‘Ahead of the Game’ event in Lagos, Nigeria where he watched an EPL game between Arsenal and Manchester United. 

A 250 mBTC donation was made to the Kanu Heart Foundation, which shows how Kanu is keen to help Sportsbet.io become one of the best betting sites that you could try. Head of Africa at Sportsbet.io Albert Climent was also pleased to have Kanu on board and believes that the former football player can make a huge impact.

‘Nwankwo Kanu needs no introduction, he’s a true football legend and it’s an absolute honour to see him join Team Sportsbet.io’, Climent said. ‘More people around the world are learning that the best way to bet is with crypto. Keep posted for some very special promotions involving Kanu and our other fantastic ambassadors’.
