The ‘rock of Gibraltar’ as he is called, disclosed that reading the book of Psalms before matches has been his ritual since his footballing career.

“Psalms before a game is my ritual. It is a personal thing whether [my team] wins, loses or draws. I have not changed because of fame or money because these things are fleeting.”
