The leaders of Senegalese football wanted whites who asked them for a lot of money.
I went to beg El Hadji Diouf and some former footballers to go and ask the government to recruit me. But, it was difficult because the minister wanted Alain Giresse (French) who asked for millions of francs.
After long weeks of discussions with the French man without an agreement, the minister invited me to an office and I seized the opportunity to say: ‘I do not run after the millions, just allow me to serve my country’
So far, I have defeated more than 9 great European coaches to finish the playoffs and reach the final.
God also allowed me to beat Alain Giresse today to send a message to African leaders to give their brothers a chance instead of spending time chasing white people.
