Did your parents support you playing football?
Initially my mum refused to support me, she wanted me to go to the university, but when she realised I have made up my mind about football, she gave her consent. She allowed me to follow my dream

No. I spent a short time there

Why did you leave for Ghana?
To find greener pastures and develop myself in football.
How long have youÂ been in Ghana?
I just spent two months.
What have you been doing in Ghana?
I was formerly training with Unistar FC when I got to Ghana, I later joined Juventus Football Club, a 3rd division side. Iâ€™m playing with them now in anticipation of getting a better contract when the transfer window opens.
Just to keep myself involved in the game because I want to fit.
What is the club position on the league table?
The club is fifth on the league table. We are on break now because of the 2010 World Cup but we will start the season in two weeks time.
What is your plan for the future?
To be with the right people that will support my career and plan to provide for the less privileged
Which of the big clubs in Europe do you aspire to play for in the future?
Manchester United of England. By the Grace of God Iâ€™ll play for the club someday.
Do want to playÂ for any of Nigerian national teams?
Which of the teams?
Flying Eagles. It has always been my dream to dorn the colours of my dear country and I believe with God on my side it will come to pass.
Who is your role model?
Nemanja Vidic of Man. United.
I like the way he plays on the field, and since I play the same position as him I have always wanted to play his style. But here in Ghana, I play as a defensive midfielder. Among Nigerian players, my role model is the former Super Eaglesâ€™ captain, Sunday Oliseh.
