Nigeria international Moses Simon has revealed that it took him time before he could adapt to life in Europe.
The Nantes forward, who is on loan from Levante, has spent seven years in Europe since signing a pre-contractual agreement with AFC Ajax on 10th May 2013 while at GBS Academy before making his first appearance for the Dutch club on 13 July 2013 in pre-season friendly match against De Graafschap.
The Super Eagles winger shared his experience during his early days in Europe in a live Instagram interview with Ojbsports.
“It was difficult adjusting to life in Europe. For the first two days we were put in a hotel but I couldn’t eat the food. They served pork and I don’t eat pork, so I survived on bread and water. Eventually they placed me with an English speaking family as my guardians.” (Text and photo courtesy Nation)
