Who do you think is the best Sierra Leonean football player ever?

I was born in the late 70’s so I have a brilliant idea about the likes of Ishmael Dyfan and co, so here are my picks for the Sierraexpressmedia.com poll. (Mohammed Kallon played only briefly in Salone, but will include him under striker).  (Photo:  Lamin Conteh, aka Tumbu)

Best Player:

  1. Gbessay Sesay. (At his peak in 1985, was the best I’ve ever seen, unfortunately his peak was short)
