Player Bio

The Stabilisator, or Stabilizer in English, is what the Dortmund fans fondly refer to this burly Swiss defender. He weighs a solid 91 kilograms and stands at 186 cm, but he's not brash in any sense of the word. He's a calm and stable guy with a lot of values, and that shows in his game as well. He was born in the tiny village of Neftenbach, Switzerland, in 1995. He has Nigerian roots from his father's side, and his mother is Swiss. He began his career with FC Wiesendangen in 2004 as a 9-year-old. Football has always been in him and he would have a kick about whenever he could, be it during break time in school or with his mates on the streets after school, he did enjoy playing the game. FC Winterthur came calling three years after he started his journey. He graduated from the youth setup and began playing for their senior side from 2014 up until FC Basel bought him a year later. He would go on to play with the Swiss team for three seasons and is now with Borussia Dortmund. Die Borussen signed him in 2018, and he has established himself as a regular in the team. For the Swiss national side, he has played in the Under-20 and Under-21 levels. He now plays for the senior side. Although he's only 24, this defender is a mature man and a leader on and off the pitch.
