“It must have been difficult. But one of Yids’ strengths, beside his football is that he is really level-headed and grounded.
“It will help him in situations like this and I had a chat with him on Tuesday now the deadline closed and he was like: ‘you know what, I am glad nothing else can happen, it’s speculation now.”
