“He’s a really, really good guy and I’ve known him since 2004. He’s a good friend of mine so we always keep in touch and when he asked me if I could ask the boss if he could come and watch the training, he said Me: ”With pleasure” and I think the boss was happy that Yaya was with us today to watch the training and learn something because I wish him all the best.
