His parents and siblings

Amadou was born to a Senegalese mother and a Cameroonian father. It is said that his parents first met in Belgium

He is also blessed with two siblings, among which one is a sister named Melissa Onana

He was brought up by his mother in West Africa with his siblings until he was 11 years old while his father moved to Belgium for a better future. 

Amadou used to live with his mother and sister in a home with 14 people in total in Senegal

His mother solely raised them and used to have different jobs to take care of her children. 

They reunited with his father after moving to Brussels, Belgium when Amadou was 11 years old. 

His mother and sister played a crucial role in his career

Amadou credits his mother and sister for his successful career. 

He said his career has only been possible because of the sacrifices of the two strongest people in his life who are his mother and sister. 

He said his mother did a lot for him and is his queen. His mother gave up her life and dreams for him. 

She had her own business in Senegal as a physio. She gave up her business and her life in Senegal to move to Belgium to make his dream a reality. 

She helped her son in the initial phase of his football career. He said that he could never thank her enough. 

His mother taught him the values he has, being kind, showing respect, and also being nice. 

And then his sister took over. His sister, Melissa, is his agent and has been managing his career since the beginning. 

He said Melissa was battling cancer during the time she helped him transfer to Hoffenheim

He also said his sister takes care of literally everything in his life from a personal trainer, chef, and mental coach, whatever he needs, his sister takes care of it. 

He praised her saying she is the strongest human being he knows.

Not only as an adult but Melissa as a child aged 12 or 13 also made sure her brother was on the right path. 

She used to go to his every game even though it was raining, snowing, or sunny. 

She started recording him on the pitch to know where he made a mistake which helped him get a trial at Hoffenheim

He said they have a solid relationship and even though it's not easy to work with one's siblings, they make it easy and have a great relationship and partnership. 

Even though she is his agent, she is still his sister.

He wants to be remembered more than just a football player

He wants people to remember him as the football player he is but more importantly, he wants people to remember the person he is. 

He wants to help as many people as he can, donate as much as he can, and do as much as he can for his people. 

At the end of the day, that is what matters to him.
