Nigeria goalkeeper, Stanley Nwabali has revealed his role model in football.

Nwabali said Bayern Munich legend, Manuel Neuer is his mentor, insisting he loves watching videos of him every time before match days to get motivation before games.

Speaking in an interview at the ongoing 2023 Africa Cup of Nations, AFCON, in Ivory Coast, Nwabali also said he loves playing the German on Play Station.

In the video posted by photojournalist Pooja on X on Monday, the Chippa United star said, “I love playing my PlayStation, I love watching my role model, I love watching Manuel Neuer even before my game.

“Even two days before my game, even in the dressing room, I always watch him, and even before my game, I always play my PlayStation.”

Nwabali has been impressive for the Super Eagles at the AFCON so far.

He has kept four clean sheets and conceded just one goal.
