So a pretty good day all in all. The lad might be on his way in the summer, but anyone who saw him during the Champs League run in 2005/2006 doesn’t doubt his quality, and after witnessing his comeback from being booed off the pitch against Wigan there is absolutely no question about his character and mental determination. He’s also one of the funniest and most likeable footballers around (occasional dive notwithstanding). So I for one will always have a place in my heart for our mad reserve right-back from the Cote d’Ivoire – as evidenced by the fact that I named this blog after the fans’ old chant for him!
