Five Africans Before They Were Famous

Africa has produced some of the world's best footballers over the years, and today, we look at five African stars before they were famous! 

Click through the mini-gallery to see the five stars!

Before signing for Manchester United this season, Eric Bailly was impressing in the Spanish La Liga, where he represented Espanyol and Villarreal. 

At first, fans were skeptical of Bailly, as he was relatively unknown, but the Ivorian has proven to be a great talent. At just 22 years old, the centre-back has a bright future ahead of himself...

World-class striker Samuel Eto'o and Didier Drogba may be far from their prime, but there haven't been many better African forwards than them!

Before Eto'o became a household name, he was at Real Madrid where he didn't quite make the cut, while Drogba began his career at Le Mans in France. 

Our mini-gallery also looks at Yaya Toure and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, before they rose to the heights they are at now. 

Which of these Africans is your or was your favourite to watch?
