What’s your earliest memory in football?
It would have to be when I was playing ‘house league’, which is the very first step to playing football in Canada. I was a keeper until I was about eight, but one game they put me up top and I scored a few goals and that’s where I’ve played ever since.
What has been your best moment in football?
I have two, the first would be signing for this club, and the other would be scoring on my debut for Romania under-16s, it was a brace against Ireland. I started off with the Romanian national team, but now I’m going to play for Canada.
What team did you support as a child?
I always supported Arsenal because of Thierry Henry.
What trophy would you most like to win?
The World Cup.
Who are your best friends at Wolves?
I get along with everyone, but my best friends are Terry Taylor, Pascal Estrada and Nigel Lonwijk.
Who is your funniest teammate?
Everyone’s funny, but I’d have to say Pascal.
Who is your worst dressed teammate?
I know everyone’s said me, and I would’ve said me too last year, but I’ve changed. It’s not me anymore, now it’s Pascal!
What are your hobbies outside of football?
A lot of eating! I like to watch TV, hang out with my friends – the usual stuff.
What would you want to be if not a footballer?
I’d say track runner. My speed is good, it’s up there.
