There wasn’t much difference in terms of what was happening off the pitch.

Interview Emmanuel Onariase

My name is Emmanuel Onariase, and I’m a right footed central defender. Both ball playing and no nonsense defender, adaptable to both depending on what the manager wants. Eat well in the week, sleep on time, do extras after training/ stretching & meditation. Keep my routine consistent. Massive because being tall, I didn’t have the best technical/dribbling ability so during my time it improved my technique and skill level massively. I learnt game understanding too.
