Q: What would you have been if you weren't a footballer?

A: I have probably designed houses from scratch.

Q: What do you love most about Crystal Palace?

A: The fact that its a family club. I have to give a shout out to the club supporters. They even make the away team want to play well!

Q: Who is the toughest full back you've ever played against?

A: I would have to say Wayne Bridge as he is strong and has good positioning.

Q: What was it that you liked about Palace that brought you here? Has it been everything you expected?

A: Dougie Freedman's man management! The excitement of playing with Wilf on the wing and being in London - my hometown. 

Q: Do you keep all the shirts you swap at the end of each game, and do you get them to sign them?

A: The only shirt that I have managed to get this season was Mesut Ozil's. But other than that I usually get the shirts from players I know like - Ravel Morrison, Nathan Redmond and Craig Noone.

Q: What was it like dealing with a change of manager during such an important time of the season?

A: As a footballer you have to get used to it as managers come and go. You just have to keep playing your football!

Q: What's the main difference you've noticed from playing in the Championship to playing in the Premier League?

A: In the Premier League they keep the ball better. In the Championship it is more end to end. If you make a mistake in the Premier League the opposition are more likely to score.

Q: Do you think football can be used to bring people together in peace in the DRC and how best can this be encouraged?

A: I think what Congo DRC needs is a global icon like Didier Drogba that will bring a lot of peace. I think now with social media players can do more to help their country.
