Leke James has told ScoreNigeria.com.ng the birth of his daughter was one of the things that drove him when he was down with a career-threatening injury for over a year.
However, the Molde FK striker said he is grateful to Coach Ole Gunner Solkjaer for helping him regain his confidence.
The full interview:
SCORENIGERIA: How was it for you not to play Football for over a year?
What was going through your mind when you were seeing your Teammates on the pitch and you were not?
What was your great motivation while you were recovering from the injury?
My family was my main motivation especially my newly-born daughter during my recovery period. Her coming into the family gave me joy and motivate me even more.
You signed the Molde FK contract while you are yet to fully recover from the injury, what can you say of this?
Yes, I signed for Molde FK while I was yet to be fully fit. The club approached me because they believe in my ability and they know what I can do having played in Norway previously. They believe I could bring more energy to the group, so they were ready to wait for me to be fully fit.
How will you describe your Coach at Molde, what did he do to contribute to your return to action?
You started for Molde in a UEFA Europa League qualIfier with a goal, what does that mean to you?
What do you have to tell your fans?
I want to tell my fans out there that I love them, I appreciate them and thank them for supporting me all through. I’m ready to put in more work to always make them happy.
