What was said about Gift Orban

“Orban a réussi l’exploit de se mettre à dos une partie du vestiaire lyonnais tellement il a été infect avec ses nouveaux coéquipiers à l’entraînement.

Bien du courage au staff pour gérer son cas s’il ne se calme pas,” Molina tweeted in French.

English Google Translation, “Orban achieved the feat of alienating part
of the Lyon locker room because he was so
nasty to his new teammates in training.

“Much courage to the staff to manage his
case if he does not calm down.”

Meanwhile, SCORENigeria recalled that last January when the former KAA Gent striker signed for the Belgian club, he told his teammates at Norwegian club Stabaek to “f*ck it stupid people”.
