In an interview with the newspaper L’Observateur, Papis Cisse talks about his relationship with Tiote and his love for Senegal.
“He often spent a few days vacationing in Senegal. And after several visits to the country, he told me that he wanted to buy a house in Senegal so that he could come back very often.
I replied that it would be extraordinary and I had promised to help him find a house in Senegal. He had never hidden himself, Senegal was like his second country. His wife, Madah, is a Senegalese woman. ”
