Tell us who you are outside of the club. What do you do, how would you describe yourself?
I currently work as a Data Security analyst, so I deal with internal and external threats to a large American Insurance firm. My work colleagues know me as a very reserved guy, which I totally agree with. My childhood friends know me as the dictator which says something for my footballing demeanor.
How did you end up at Merton FC?
I moved to London around July and was looking for a new team. Had a look on Gumtree and here I am.
What was your best moment in your MFC career till now?
Getting Motm vs BoE and saving two pens in said game.
If you could play for a professional team, which would be it and why?
Eibar. Small ground, ΒΌ of the population at every home game. Small budget, yet fight way above their weight.
Do you have any pre-match rituals or superstitions?
Never wear the same brand boots and gloves and always tape left knee before right.
Lastly, share us your goals/expectations for the season.
Get promoted and have a decent cup run.
