Adebayo Akinfenwa is one of the biggest names in England’s lower league football. In England, the AFC Wimbledon player is being refered to as the ‘strongest man in football’, because of his macho size.
Monday’s League Two playoff final win over Plymouth looks like being his final game for Wimbledon. He scored his side’s second goal.
The Beast, as he is fondly called, has not been offered a new contract at the club for next season. So, joking after the match, he told SkySports:
“I think I’m technically unemployed, so any managers hit me up on the WhatsApp and get me a job.”
The comment was quickly picked up by the UK Twitter account of wrestling network WWE, who simply tweeted a telephone emoji in response.
However, the world’s strongest footballer should have no problem finding a new club if the past 24 hours are anything to go by with offers from as far afield as Australia and the Far East.
