“We have a manager here willing to give everybody an opportunity — he gave me one and I didn’t look back.

“After that, he kept on encouraging me and went through it with me. What the position was all about, mostly in training.

“It was a new manager giving me the opportunity to express myself — and I am enjoying it.

“I just want to keep on working hard — every game, every week — to make sure I am still improving.

“And when I play against a winger, because I was a winger myself, I understand what they are going to do," the Nigerian said.
