Patson Daka is a Zambian-born professional footballer who plays for Leicester City and the Zambian national team as a forward. 

Daka made his international debut at the age of 16 with his hometown club Kafue Celtic.

His father was a former footballer

Daka was born to his father, Nathtali, who was a former footballer. 

He grew up seeing his father play as a winger for the local club Nitrogen Stars in Kafue

His father’s playing career was derailed by the injury due to which he had to give up at an early age. 

Giving up his playing career did not stop him from taking his son to see the matches in Kafue Celtic

He had said that his son was going to make the director of Celtic, Lee Kawanu, happy, bringing him the good things, and like he said when Lee spotted him after 4 years in the reserve team shooting in every way possible, right, left, inside, and outside the box. 

At first, he did not realize that he was Nathtali’s son. Sadly his father passed away, but the dream he saw for his son to make him a great footballer has become true.
