 Bayo Dedicates Award to His Mother

After being crowned as the Man of the Match, he dedicated the award to his mother, who he says has been helpful to him.

“I am happy to have been crowned, I dedicate this award to my mother especially because she often supports me in difficult times,” he said. Despite the draw, the 25-year old striker expressed his satisfaction with the performance they put up. “I think we played a good game.

This result was the work of all the players in the national team. I’m a striker and I’m supposed to score goals to help my country. “We regret that one of the players was sent off with a red card, and despite that, we played well,” he concluded.

Bayo’s  Early Childhood

Bayo was born in Clermont-Ferrand on June 4, 1998 and grew up on a housing estate in La Gauthière, a neighbourhood of the city which is little more than a stone’s throw from the local football club’s Stade Gabriel-Montpied.

Bayo first joined Clermont as a six-year-old and signed professional terms in 2017, making his top-team debut in a Coupe de France tie in November of that year aged 19.

After a handful of top-team appearances in the 2018-19 season, Bayo was loaned out to USL Dunkerque in the third tier, finally fleeing the family nest for the first time.
