“It’s always a nice feeling when you play alongside your fellow countryman. Gabriel is a fantastic player and I hope we can form a deadly partnership here in Morocco. We linked up well on Friday against Olympic Safi but unfortunately, we lost the game.

“Hopefully, we can bounce back in our next game and try to win our Champions League game on Friday,” Babatunde said.
