      Facts! I hope they realize that starting at a big club isn’t a must and not saying they can’t hold their own but have a high chance of breaking into the first team sooner than a big club.

    Tijani must be careful not to fall in traps of fantasy offers. We all know what happened to Souleymane Coulibaly of the Ivory Coast, Kelechi Iheanacho, Mohammed Musa, etc. Better to start with a less flamboyant club and get more game time rather than languish on the bench.
