He mentioned in an interview with Kwaku Manu on his Aggressive Show that he used to play like Abedi Ayew when he was nurturing the dream of becoming a great footballer.
“Growing up, my dream was to be a great football player. I was really good. It was Abedi Pele that I used to regard as my idol. He was one of the greatest in the world. And people used to tell me I played just like him. I’m left-handed and left-footed just like him,” Sonnie said.
