And now he’s set to play against the Reds in the UEFA Champions League.
“When I was a kid I used to support Manchester United but we are not talking about Manchester United right now, we are talking about Liverpool,” he admitted to Football 365.
“We believe Liverpool are a strong team now in the Premier League and European competition and we expect a tough game. We will try to break them down.”
He added: “We are playing in front of our own supporters so we want to be happy at the end of the game. We will do our best.”
“I think it is a dream game. When you play football you dream about these kinds of games.”
“As a kid, you watched these kinds of games but now you are on the pitch playing the game,” he commented.
“Everyone (in Tanzania) is talking about the game tomorrow, talking about Ally and (Virgil) Van Dijk, saying I have to do something against him, go past him, dribble.”
“I think a lot of them will watch the game tomorrow,” he concluded.
