    There is a saying in Yoruba land ‘abinibi yato si ability’ meaning, what runs in the blood is superior to what is learnt. Put Siasia in the domain of the lamed ones, he would raise you a winning team , take him to Atacama desert, he would go fishing. You see cohesion, direction, fighting -spirit , skillful display any time he’s in charge making your system to be at ease rather than causing you heart attack. Siasia, you are an asset to the world of soccer. I doff my hat, congrats my fellow soccer fans.
