The forward who currently plays in for Levante in La Liga also spoke about life in the Spanish LaLiga and how marriage and fatherhood have made him a better player.
PT: Can you tell us how the season is going for you in the LaLiga with Levante
Simon: Everything is going well though I did not start playing quickly because I had to learn their tradition, language, and information. I had to know people there to share some ideas and try everything possible to concentrate on getting the job done.
PT: With the few games remaining, what is your target for the rest of the season with Levante
Simon: My target for the rest of the season is to help my team remain in the Primera La Liga and at least finish the season mid-table.
PT: Can you tell us your biggest moments in the LaLiga so far.
Simon: Playing alongside the likes of Lionel Messi is unbelievable and a thing of joy for me. Before now, we only watched him play and he was a joy to behold but having him on the same pitch with myself playing against each other at Camp Nou was very great, seeing them face to face is like a dream come true
PT: … And your Lowest moments in La Liga
Simon: If I were to call any period my lowest moment, it would be when I joined La Liga newly. but I don’t think I will call it that instead, I would say it was a time of adapting and adjusting to a new system and a new country and I needed to do that if I hoped to thrive in the league
PT: Nigeria is returning to the Africa Cup of Nations after missing out on back-to-back editions of the tournament. What is the target in Egypt?
Simon: Normal, for the team, the target is to win the Nations Cup. But we all know that we have to work so hard and do everything possible to meet that target. It is not going to be easy because we are going to be facing some strong opposition, but the spirit in the team is very high and we are going there to make the country proud
