“I ended up in a situation where I was without a club. So I had to do a lot of tests to get to where I am today, to get the approval from doctors to say I could play again without any risks.

“For my family, it’s an excellent place to be for my family.

“For me, they play in the Premier League for the next four or five months [I can] get up to a level and get to show who I am as a football player.
