For me, it was a role I’m used to.‘Obviously it’s not the same when you’re 14 or 15 as it is now because the responsibility and what you represent is completely different, but it’s always been something that I’ve enjoyed.‘I enjoy positions of responsibility and I enjoy being the first one on that wall.‘For me, I have been speaking to the coach for a few months and he was telling me that I could be one of the people that could represent the team.‘I was really happy with it because I’m someone who’s been here for a long time and I know how the club runs.’MORE: Tottenham Hotspur ready to hire Arsenal hero Steve Morrow as academy chiefMORE: Chelsea, Arsenal and Tottenham plotting transfer moves for Real Madrid’s Achraf HakimiFollow Metro Sport across our social channels, on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.For more stories like this, check our sport page.center_img Comment Advertisementlast_img read more
