“My background is my biggest motivator because I grew up in a tough environment. When I discovered my talent I just told myself that this will take me far. Then I got a scholarship to Prince Edward High, I never thought of backtracking on football since it’s what I can do. When I think of where I come from and how I was raised I just remember that I have a lot to do and I need to work hard.

I will utilize this opportunity of playing for the biggest club in the country to transform me and that’s why I feel that I still need to do more. All I can do now is to stay grounded, focus on my job while pushing harder to satisfy the expectations that everyone has for me.” he said.
