“The invitation surprised me, I did not expect it. I am very happy and excited, I am living my dream. Chiellini was the first to congratulate me and to help me in the formation, because we play in the same city and I know him. While I respect the origin of my parents, I never waited for the call of Nigeria. Being born and raised here I have always felt Italian. Fortunately I have never suffered what I call ignorance, not racism. Episodes of this kind are declining, both on and off the football field.”

One Response so far.
