“When I was a kid, I played as a goalkeeper. That’s why they named me Ekongolo(a very popular keeper who used to play for Étoile Filante of Garoua), childhood nickname…. I also played as a center-back and as a defensive midfielder…. I was repositioned as 8 then finally settled as 10 shirt. When I moved to Europe, I was placed as Centre Foward but my favorite position is 10.” – Vincent Aboubakar on Canal+Sport.
