''I am a central defender, my role model is David Luiz, '' said Andrew to allnigeriasoccer.com.

''I always love to watch him play because he inspires me a lot. He is calm on the ball, strong and aggressive.

''My favorite club is Chelsea and I dream to play for Chelsea, I have been a fan of Chelsea right from when I was young and my role model David Luiz plays for the club.

''My target in the next five years is to be in a top club in Europe and to be invited to the national team, I have always dreamed of playing for Nigeria.''

When Andrew was asked about his qualities and the aspect of his game that needs improvement, he replied : "I'm a very good user of the ball and a very good marker. I win a lot of aerial balls.

''I am a good passer of the ball, both long and short passes. I think I need to improve on my interception.''
