Super Eagles youngster Raphael Onyedika was on coaching duty recently, teaching Club Brugge's football team for the diables.

In what was a very wholesome gesture, Super Eagles and Genk star Raphael Onyedika got busy recently coaching people with disabilities.

The 21-year-old Nigeria international has been impressive on the pitch for Club Brugge this season, and as is now evident, he is a class act off it too.

The young midfielder was said to have been giving the players 'tips and tricks, passing on his knowledge of the game.  

It was part of Brugge's 'No Heart, No Glory' campaign, and the Imo-born defensive midfielder was seen with all smiles, visibly enjoying his effort for the cause.  

His form this season 

The former Ebedei man joined the Belgian side from Midtjylland last summer for a €9.5 million fee, according to TransferMarkt.

He is proving valuable for the relatively sizable fee paid for him, for a club like Brugge, as his performances contributed to the Blauw Zwart's impressive Champions League campaign.  

The class of 2001 midfielder has been ever present for the employers this season, playing 40 games for them in all competitions this season.
