Joel Adesina was an ‘Ambitious’ and ‘hard-working’
teenager who was talented enough to play professionally in
the topflight of the English football league.
As reported on Daily Mail, he was stabbed in the stomach
during a late-night row on Friday night last week in Bethnal
Green, East London after Joel and his friends were
ambushed while taking a walk and were chased into a
housing estate where he was stabbed.
He was rushed to the hospital where he died three hours
later into Saturday morning.
An 18 year-old suspect was arrested but later released with
no further action to be taken.
Neighbours and manager of the teenager’s football team
described him a gentle young boy who never stayed out late
as he was mostly seen returning home in his football kits
Joel as a winger was ‘’as good as gold” and talented enough
to play professionally,’ his coach at Bardag FC Yellows,
Ricky Downes said.
‘’To say that myself and the club are devastated is an
understatement, we are absolutely in bits.
‘’Joel was a wonderful young lad who had the world at his
feet.
‘’He was a very talented footballer and had ambitions of
playing professionally. I think he had a future in the sport
and could have played for a living.
‘’He was a very talented footballer and had ambitions of

‘’There was something about Joel that touched me and his
death is totally unexpected. He never gave me any inkling
that he was involved in gangs or anything like that.
‘’He was cheeky, bubbly, and a thoroughly likeable young
man,’’ 55 year-old Mr Downes added.
Police report has it that Joel and his friends were walking,
possibly home, when they were confronted by a group in a
parked car; they were chased by the group into a housing
estate where neighbours say they heard ‘screaming and
shouting’. Joel was cornered and stabbed.
