Former Arsenal midfielder Alexandre Song builds international school in Cameroon

Former Cameroon international Alexandre Song has completed the construction of an international school in Douala.

The institution named Canadian International School and College boasts of a day care, nursery, primary and secondary school.

Song revealed on his social media platform on Thursday that it is an important project for him to make Cameroon better.

“I am delighted to have finished this project which was so close to my heart to make my small share of contribution in our beautiful and dear country I present to you Canadian school,” Song wrote on Instagram.

Aside his new investment in education, the ex-Arsenal and Barcelona midfielder owns an established business in the fashion industry named ‘Systeme Tchakap’.

Song played for English Premier League clubs Arsenal, West Ham and La lIga giants Barcelona.

“When FC Barcelona offered me a contract and I saw how much I would earn, I didn’t think twice about it,” Song told professional basketball player and fellow countryman Pascal Siakam of the Toronto Raptors in an Instagram Live session.

“I thought my wife and children should have a comfortable life. I met the sporting director and he said I wouldn’t play many games, but I didn’t give a sh*t. I knew I was going to be a millionaire.”
