Images from a British programme

Dear Ibrahim,

Sending you some images from a programme that was shown on channel 5 here in England, 9th June, 2000, the documentary was about the trip of the football team Middlesbourgh to Libya. "(...) crap" one player commented when asked about his view of the country so far, another player thought it was "rough".

Remember that these people are getting one million pound to play in a small tournament against the Libyan team and to entertain Gadaffi's kids.The highlights of the programme was when Gadaffi's elder son Mohammed came to watch the Middlesbourgh team training, he was introduced to the famous player Paul Gasgoin, who is also famous for his clowning behavior, during the encounter Gasgoin asked: " which one did I meet at Lazio (Italian team he played for during the nineties, and favorite of al-Saadi al-Gadaffi) ?" After he was told it was the other one meaning al-Saadi, he nodded and continued " Yeah.. he was always on the cocktail and everything (illustrating with his hands)". You can see the shock on the delegate faces of the revelation about al-Saadi and his drinking habits when he was in Italy.

Thank you Ibrahim, and may God keep you for very long time to come.

Yours,

Alsature
