The 25-year-old then quickly noticed and said: “I should know him quite well? Ibou, it is Ibou! Ah, okay.
“He’s my neighbour as well, he lives literally next door!”.
The thought of the pair putting the bins out together and maybe giving each other a lift, adds a whole new dimension to their relationship on the pitch.
Given his age and recent arrival to the country, it’s likely that the former Wolves player would have helped the Frenchman settle into life on Merseyside too.
