I feel very Nigerian – Tomori

Fikayo Tomori joins AC Milan

AC Milan defender, Fikayo Tomori, has said his upbringing makes him feel very Nigerian.

The 23-year-old opted to represent England at senior level.

However, up to date, Tomori has represented the Three Lions only once. He featured against Kosovo on November 17 during the 2020 Uefa Euro qualifiers.

In a recent interview, the defender went on to explain the meaning of his name and his feelings.

“My name is Nigerian and it means, ‘God has filled me with joy, it is typical in Nigeria to give such names,” Tomori told DAZN as quoted by MilanPress.

“I feel very Nigerian, when I was little my parents spoke to me in the local language and I ate typical Nigerian food.”
