Football Family, Rejoice!

The sad and sorry case of hitherto trapped footballer Zahir Belounis is now at an end – the French footballer’s Qatar Hell is over and he is back on home soil with his loved ones.

The role of the media in helping his protracted case reach an end game has been attributed as a big factor in his getting home safely.

Great, brilliant news. Welcome home Zahir.
