The Gambia’s national squad coach Tom Saintfiet told Gambia football federation media about Yusupha Bobb’s new deal. Tom Saintfiet said he was happy with the Scorpion’s signing. He added that the club had contacted him about the midfielder’s profile.
“Piacenza is a club with a great history. They have played in Serie A, in Serie B, and are very ambitious in Serie C. It is a traditional club with many fans. It’s good now that he has officially signed with them, and it will be an excellent competitive team to play for him. “, said the Belgian to www.gambiaff.org.
