Hi Adrian, what posters did you have on your wall when you were our readers' age?
Adrian says: "Probably Oliver Kahn, and also one for Gianluigi Buffon! When you’re young you look for the best players at that moment and these two were probably the best! Buffon still is great and is an idol for everyone – not just goalkeepers, all players! He trains hard and is fit and has a giant mentality!"
Even though you’re a keeper, didn't you score in Mark Noble’s testimonial?
Adrian says: "There was a little bit of planning in the dressing room with Michail Antonio and Pedro Obiang because it’s difficult to run from one goal to the other goal! They were my protectors. Lucky for me, I scored! It was a joke moment and a funny moment for the fans! It was a great memory because the stadium was full and everyone was celebrating Mark Noble!"
so, was that your first ever goal?
Adrian says: "I have scored a penalty before against Everton in the FA Cup but this was different! It was funny and a joke, but it was still a goal! I felt tired the next day because I ran 100m but it was a good feeling! My wife and baby were there but I didn’t even have time to celebrate with them! I was breathing hard and then went back to my goal!"
