Yeovil Town manager Darren Sarll spoke highly of his new front man Adi Yussuf ahead of the game with King’s Lynn.
Speaking to the Gloverscast’s own Ben Barrett the Manager said he was excited to work with Yussuf after he had been triying to secure his services for a while.
“We have been speaking to Adi and his agent all summer… he’s at a good age at 29, established in the division and has the capability to score 20-plus goals a season”
Those final words will be music to Yeovil fans’ ears after the summer departure of Rhys Murphy to Southend, it’s a sentiment that was backed up recently by the Blackpool Gazette journalist Matt Scrafton who agreed with Sarll that Yussuf probably just needs a solid base from which to really fire.
Sarll added of the former Tangerines’ front man; “He’s an uncomplicated finisher (with) brutal force and instinct”
“Wilkinson said when we played against Yussuf he gave him a hard time and those things are important when new players walk into the dressing room… Adi needs a spike in his fitness levels before we see him week in week out, but he will be a really good signing.”
