Salako praises Bowyer

An interesting interview with former Addick John Salako who praises Lee Bowyer's achievements as manager at Charlton:

I have two memories of Salako.   One was when he scored an equaliser in a FA Cup game at home against Dagenham and Redbridge who were evidently a second team for many West Ham fans.  Saved initial embarrassment we then had a replay at Dagenham which we just managed to win.  Curbs told me subsequently that Dagenham had given Charlton 'a torrid time.'

The other was flying back from Liverpool to Luton after a game we lost with Curbs and the players on the plane.  John Salako was siting behind me and had a very intelligent conversation about football with a random passenger next to him.
