Speaking to talkSports, the 39-year-old said, “My teammates were just special, especially these young lads. “They call me uncle! Joe Aribo and Glen Kamara call me uncle. It is so funny at this stage in my career. I would come into the gym and the lads would be on their phones and say ‘uncle’s coming, uncle’s coming’. “I will say something to them and they will say, ‘okay, uncle’. It is just brilliant appreciation from the boys. “Joe Aribo messaged me the other day and sent a nice message saying ‘honoured to play with you, uncle. I feel so blessed I contributed to helping you get that league title’. These are special people.”
