“He is part of our team and he is our player until his contract run out and beyond. So it is just about supporting him and make sure he gains his confidence and to allow him to keep growing and been a good footballer we know he can be for us and the national team.

“We told him to not let the noise get into in his way and the way of things. Skelem just need to keep on working hard and we will always have to support him and so that he can keep growing both as a person and a soccer player. I know that he is committed to this team and he just needs to keep working hard to keep his place in the starting team.”
