The 23-year-old relied on the airport staff to have his daily meal as he mostly ate samosas and fried rice.

"I came here on a six month visa.

"After the lockdown was announced, I wanted to return home and even bought a flight ticket for March 30 from Mumbai to Ghana.

"But before I could return, the government cancelled all international flights and I was stuck here.

"The private security staff and house keeping gave me samosas. The CISF (Central Industrial Security Force) guys gave me some money to buy food.

"I was running out of money quickly, as everything is expensive at the airport. So I tried to save money.

"Every day it was the same routine, and I watched the skies and rescue planes, hoping that one day I will fly too."

But Muller's story which went viral on the internet caught the attention of the President of Mumbai District Football Association, Aaditya Thackerayo, and was finally moved to a hotel in Bandra.
