The silent king

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 He is Brother Abdul Salam Bilal from Versaille
His career has surfaced the high points all the way

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Still a footballing nomad as time elapses on the clock
Presently he’s comfortably nestled up north in the Reebok

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 This A list footballer commenced his career at PSG
Before leaving for North London, hopping across the sea

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Goal blitz under the Professor’s tutelage, North London toasted him with glee
Soon jetted to Madrid in a record breaking fee

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Not before he’d put many a Premier defence to the sword
Winning plaudits galore and the young player award

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 An enigma you may say of exceptional ability
Monsieur has always chosen not to settle in one city

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 Paris, Liverpool, the blue half of Manchester and Turkey
Will the Wanderer demand a transfer in January?

8 Leave a comment on verse 8 0 A much maligned and misunderstood enigma
Brother Abdul Salam, please remember us in your prayer

9 Leave a comment on verse 9 0 Back in Blighty, Bilal will continue to do the biz
You’ll not get any points for guessing who he is
