“The only thing that makes me happy is football, playing or watching football on TV or live match at the field.

“When i was small I was only privileged to watch Kanu and Jay Jay Okocha, I don’t watch women’s football because my dad doesn’t like anything football so i couldn’t watch women’s football.

“He is not happy with me playing football, but his happiness doesn’t matter in my life my happiness matters alot because am the one playing, but I promise to make him proud one day.

“My dream is to play in Europe and change my family status, and make my father’s name known.

Also sharing her thoughts ahead of the new season the winger reveals her readyiness and believes Abia Angels will give a good fight.
