"I do football skills and tricks, like trying to get the ball into a small target, it was more for fun at first and then it went viral and I now do it full time.

"I love it and I wouldn't change it for the world, I am doing something I love and I have travelled across the world.

"I have been to LA with Man Utd, as a United fan, to train with the players was a dream come true.

"My job involves me travelling across the country, I am signed for Adidas so I get to try out the new boots when they first come out.

"I recently made a video on Soccer AM which had 10 million views in 40 days.

"I have an online following of over 200,000 and over 40 million views accumulated across all social media platforms."

He wants to use his experience to help inspire others, he said: "When I was younger I wanted to be a footballer, that didn't work out but I am still doing something I love and it is down to hard work.

"I want to show young people that if they work hard and don't give up they can do whatever they want in life."
