Togo mid-fielder Salifou recalls horror of Angolan terror strike
London, Feb.5 (ANI): Togo and Aston Villa mid-fielder Moustapha Salifou is yet to recover from the horror of the terror attack launched by Angolans on the national team bus last month ahead of the African Nations Cup.
Even today, Salifou says he wakes up at 3 a.m. every morning to the sound of gunfire.ccording to The Sun, the noise is only in his head, but it is a recurring nightmare reminder that just four weeks ago Salifou was on his hands and knees praying for his life as he ducked bullets.
Men died, and Salifou's best friend, keeper Obilale Kossi, is still in hospital after being shot.
Salifou is back at Villa and hopes that football will heal the pain of that traumatic day.
He also speaks regularly to Togo's captain - Manchester City striker Emmanuel Adebayor.
He admitted: "Since I came back I haven't been sleeping. I just wake up at 3 a.m. or 4 a.m. I've been dreaming that somebody has been shooting at me."
Salifou, who has been offered counselling by Villa, was one of the lucky ones.
Togo pulled out of the tournament under instructions from their government and has now been banned from the next two competitions.
Salifou, 26, believes it could have been much worse had the players' coach not dropped behind the bus carrying the kit. (ANI)
