Where is Salifou?
As many of you will know, on the last day of the summer transfer window we signed Moustapha Salifou from FC Wil and like many villa fans I am wondering where on earth he is.
He has played for the reserves many times and in fact played for them last night. He has also had much praise whilst in the reserves and has created quite a few goals due to his killer ball instinct.
On August 31, 2007, Salifou signed a one-year deal, joining for a nominal fee after a successful trial. Martin O'Neill commented that 'He has great determination to succeed at this level and may well prove to be an excellent asset'. The midfielder joined from Swiss side FC Wil, but had previously played for French side Stade Brest 29 and German team Rot-Weiß Oberhausen.
Whilst playing at Stade Brest he had a very impressive goals record scoring 16 goals 7 appearances.He is a member of the national team, and was called up to the 2006 World Cup. He played in all three of Togo's group games in that World Cup against South Korea, Switzerland and France. He has 33 caps scoring 4 goals.
He earnt glowing reports after a positive performance at the World Cup, this alerted the attention of many French league clubs, and prompted the nickname the 'Togolese Zidane', due to Salifou's playmaking nature.
Soooooooooooooooo, when, or is he ever going to be given his chance in the senior team?????? I have heard on a few occasions that Martin O'Neil has said that he is pushing hard for a spot in the first team but his fitness is not up to scratch.
How long before he is considered fit? Any one know any more details?
