In 2012, former Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini likened the midfield maestro to Gullit who won the Ballon d’Or in 1987and led Netherlands to Euro 1988 triumph as a captain.

During his stay in Russia, the African legend worked with Egypt legend Mohamed Aboutrika and former Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger in the studio.
