I am 36 years old, but the inner me is still strong. I can perform at the highest level with football. I can play more than all the current players in the Ghana league.

“I train a lot. I don’t drink or smoke. I take very good care of myself… Even if I drink, once a while. Even if I take 'madingo', just a small one but I like 'madingo' a lot,” he told Godfred Akoto Boafo.
