Nigerian-born England Under-20 international, Dominic Iorfa, has revealed he became a defender because his father and ex-Nigeria international striker Dominic Iorfa wanted it so.
The young defender emerged through Wolverhampton Wanderers Academy ranks as a center-back, but it is at right full-back where he burst to prominence at Molineux in the just ended season.
He said he preferred to be a striker like his dad and actually started as a striker until his father felt otherwise.
“I started my career as a striker at Southend and I wanted to be a center-forward like my dad, but ironically it was he who told my coach that he thought I should play in defence,” he told Wolves official website.
“Ever since then I’ve always played in defence but when I was younger I wanted to be a striker really.”
