International football “My children are older and I have a lot of space,” explained the former footballer
He doesn’t know yet but in a few weeks the life of a refugee radically change. The 59-year-old former English footballer Gary Lineker is hosting someone who has applied for asylum through the charity ‘Refugees at Home’ and I will do it in your Surrey mansion (UK) valued at about £ 4 million.
“What if I feel apprehensive? Not at all. I have had a lot of connection with refugees in recent years. I have met dozens of young refugees through soccer schemes and they are really lovely kids who appreciate any help they can get. I’m sure it’ll be fine. Everyone my children have grown and I have a lot of space, so if I can help temporarily, I am more than happy to do it. Why not? “, Explains Lineker in Mirror.
Lineker registered as a host three weeks ago and has now said that he would soon welcome a refugee into his home: “I think we owe a lot to the refugees and most people are descended from refugees at some point. “
“I am used to young men in my house, I have four boys in their twenties and believe me, I’m sure they’ll behave better than mine. Damn messy bastards … “jokes the former footballer for England and teams like Leicester City, Everton, Barcelona, Tottenham and Nagoya Grampus. He is now a football commentator and TV host.
The last images of the English Channel marked him: “It was seeing the images of what was happening. Seeing the families die seemed so intolerable, so sad … I thought ‘get in his skin’. Imagine if it was London that was being bombed and we had to flee somewhere and no one would accept us, no one would like us and everyone would hate us. “
