Arsenal winger, Reiss Nelson, returns home to his South London community in this heartwarming interview with Sky Sports.
The football star reminisces with old friends and teachers and, as he re-explores his old stomping ground, we get insight into where he grew up and went to school.
Nelson opens up about his humble upbringing, childhood memories with Man United’s Jadon Sancho, and proving himself within the Arsenal team. Above all else, Nelson is clear in expressing his biggest goal – to be a game changer and role model for his community.
In a full circle moment, he stands alongside his childhood hero, Ian Wright, during the official opening of a local football pitch that Neilson funded as a way of giving back to his community. He expresses the way that football provided him with a place of safety and freedom as a youngster, and he wanted to create the same for the youth of today.
