“The Academy stuff is something I have always done. Even when I was a player I would go down in the afternoons to the Academy,” Ameobi told Chronicle.

“If the Academy and club hadn’t invested in me I wouldn’t be where I am. It has always been a passion of mine.

“The Foundation too, is all about the community and what we can do. Football has a huge part to play in the city.
