WENT TO BED AN ENUGU RANGER, WOKE UP A LIVERPUDLIAN

By Akin Ojumu

Having lost their two best players, and being down 3 goals to a Barcelona side that is arguably the best football team in the world, and that has the best football player in our generation playing for them, this Liverpool side put on an incredible show of grit and resilience of a determined human spirit.

It was a display of desire and passion of a group of people working as one to achieve a common goal and common purpose, all against the backdrop of seemingly insurmountable odds. This was a Team performance of all times. 

There was no reliance on one star player or one person. It was a joining of hands and coupling of minds of 11 players committed to working as one united team, under the creative and exuberant inspiration of a Manager who is deft at human dynamics and who has an obviously genuine affection and respect for every member of his team.

It blows my socks off. I doff my hat to the players and their Manager. I went to bed last night an Enugu Ranger but woke up this morning a Liverpudlian.

This once again proves that when a people come together as one, and when they speak one language...one voice...nothing they set out to do will impossible for them. It is a lesson for all divided nations and segregated families. Harmony, like precious perfume, fills the atmosphere with sweet aroma of incredible blessings and unbelievable victory. We all prosper abundantly when we live together in one accord.
