  6. Soooooo proud of you eh…. watching the interview with my son and he looks up to you so much. Thanks for that discipline and commitment you continue to show on and off the field. One thing i know for sure is that the discipline that you have is what continues to keep you ahead of many in the football fraternity. Skill isn’t every thing and you have proven that over and over inspite of all the negative people have to say. Well done! Wonderful interview. My kids will continue to look up to you because you’re a great uncle and wonderful role model. Keep it up bro and God bless! We love u always.

  11. One of the best interviews we have done Lasana Liburd. He answered alot of questions concerning the world cup that a lot of people including myself asked for years.
