“I’ll miss the people. In the UK, apart from the club you play for, no one is going to recognise you. No one is going to come up to you and no one is going to want to talk football, so I’m definitely going to miss the people. Just walking down the street, someone stops you and you are playing Pirates over the weekend and they want discuss that. I absolutely love that interaction! Football-wise, I’ll miss my teammates, playing for SuperSport and being the captain. I’ll miss those who work for SuperSport behind the scenes because we’ve got some of the most incredible people,” he said.
