“Yaya is glad that he was at Akhmat. And I think his advice and personal participation in training, in individual work with (Mohamed) Konate and (Senin) Sebai are giving results.

“We see Mohamed progressing and scoring goals. I am sure that Yaya will achieve great results in his work, as he loves football and is ready to work 24 hours a day.
