What are your strengths?
My very best strength is shooting with both left and right.

What are your weaknesses?
For me as a footballer I don’t think I have a weaker side.

Career highlight so far?
I will say I am much delighted and happy so far about my football career because during my time in Atletico Madrid I got the chance to play and train with many players now in the like of David de Gea of Manchester United, Koke of Atletico Madrid, Aguero of Man City and Diego Forlan. My move to Serbia again makes me experience different type of football and first team football and back to Tunisia I got to play with the like of Ahmed Abdulnour in Valencia now etc…went to Saudi Arabia played for 3 different clubs so I will say so far my career has been wonderful and much happy to say that.

Who are your football heroes?
My football heroes are Okocha of Nigeria formerly Bolton, Thierry Henry because I am a fan of Arsenal, Didier Drogba of Chelsea because many people say we resemble…and last but not the list Adebayor a player I take my inspiration from.

Best advice received?
I got a lot of advice from people but the best ones I got are from my fans.

Best player you’ve played against?
The best player I have played and come against us David de Gea, I met him during our World Cup in Korea I scored against him and we met in the same club again in Spain, Atletico Madrid and I always find it difficult sometimes to go pass him anytime in training.

Best player you’ve played with?
Best player I have played with is Kun Aguero. The first time I played with him was when I got the first chance to be in the Atletico Madrid first team in a cup match, I got 10 minutes to play and playing with him was exceptional and a dream come through..few games in the second team they use to call me Aguero.

Who is your best friend in football?
All the players I have played with I will say my best friend in football is my own man from Ghana who use to play for Bento, Ishmael Yartey is more than best friend to me I will say he is just a brother to me.

In five years time I’ll be…
My plans for the future too are many to be said because I still want to be in the football business even when I stop football, to help to promote youth football in Africa, especially from my hood because of youth football we all got the chance to become professional footballers and also in agency of managing players in African football that is my dream if God permits I still health and have long life.

How did it feel when world soccer voted you the Most Exciting Teenagers on the Planet?
I was not surprise to have been voted the most excited teen on the planet because during the World Cup I said later a very good performance though I didn’t win any award during that time but most of the awards won by our team mates was from my assist and I think that was the main reason it took me to many places and I was respected by many players around the world and feared by many goalkeepers.

Thanks for your time and the Illyria for this interview I want to assure my fans and all football fans am still around and still working hard to fulfill my last dream in football and that is the senior national team.

Football has been my ultimate passion since day one. Football really started becoming a huge part of my life when I was 14, but with the Internet not being as prominent at the time, I had a hard time finding pertinent information. And this is exactly how Football-Wonderkids came about. As the website’s Founder, I’m on a mission to curate information on current youth players across the globe and make it readily available all in one place.
