What has been your highlight of the season?

From personal view supporters talk to me about the penalty save against Newcastle United.

Who is your best friend on the team?

We are all really good friends and us goalkeepers train together everyday.

Have you played for any other football teams?

I played for Sint-Truiden in Belgium before coming to Sunderland.

Who is the quickest on the pitch?

I would have to say James McClean but we have some really quick players.

Who did you support growing up?
I supported Sint-Truiden who were my local team.

How do you prepare for a game?
The team all prepare together. The goalkeepers normally start our warm up earlier though before kick-off.

Apart from football, do you play any other sports?
I like to play golf too.
