Born in Burundi and raised in Rwanda, Abdul has been a proud member of the IProSkills team since August 2021. He fell in love with IProSkills mainly because of the club’s focus on all different aspects of the game across every age group. These areas are mental preparation, focus on each individual technical devepmeny, tactical instructions and focus on each individual physical abilities and strength and the last but most important–disciplined environment built to shape not only the athlete but also the new young generation.
This holistic approach to training reminds Abdul of the soccer program he knew and loved as a youth. Abdul enjoys exercising at his local gym at least two hours a day, five days a week. He loves cooking, especially for friends and family. He lives in the Edgewater neighborhood of Chicago with his wife Addison.
