    Sorry to say but this is the most stupid excuses I have read concerning dropping Musa Tombo, it's not clear at all. Seeing him performing at highest form in work rate in the SLPL, and all you can say there are player's better than him, it's not about being in the big leagues but consistently performance and Musa have proven such in the home league. This is sad for Sierra Leone football, you ought to know better John or Keister. Shame on you!!!!

    I can't believe this Coach could say this Musa Tombo is one of the best home base player at the moment No coach at his or her right mind could drop Musa Tombo base on the reason that you gave You have another motive you just don't like the player just say it to the public But I guess you have to put the country first.
