Youri Djorkaeff

Post by Nicko58 » Sun Jul 16, 2017 1:22 am

He was interviewed at the Star Sixes tournament in London earlier and managed to squeeze THIS in. There's also an interview with Talksport knocking about where he's particularly complimentary about us.

I understand that most players will speak highly of their former clubs if prompted, but it's heartening to know that a player of his stature attaches such warm feelings towards his time playing here that he made the effort to do so of his own accord (note: he made no such reference to Rovers :wink:).

Yep, for all Okocha's flair and enterntainment, he wasn't quite Youri

I remember a City fan telling me how he spent pretty much a whole game against us just watching Youri ghost around and absolutely pull his team apart even when nowhere near the ball
