According to the player, the gesture is meant to show the spirit of the festive period.

“Christmas is a time to show love, compassion and kindness to all men and the little token is to show that I am with our people in spirit even if I can be available physically,” he said.

Reacting, Sports Writers Association of Nigeria (SWAN), Kwara State Chapter, commended the Nottingham Forest player for the gesture.
