“Before kick-off, the way our crowd sings North London Forever is so loud and gives you goosebumps.

“We are one family because we are spending time with each other,” he said. “On and off the pitch we try to be together.

“You’re growing as a person with such nice people around, trying to improve yourself. You learn every single day through a lot of different situations, sometimes with emotions. You need to have experiences to know how to react.”
