I remember that night and it will stay with me forever as I was in Milan at the Milan Derby that night, this was the match that was abandoned as Dida was hit with a flare.

As soon as got back to hotel was delighted to find out our score.

Fair do's to the big man: he was gash, but I always liked him.

I remember Bill Leckie's summing up of him in the player ratings on a report on a Hibs game in the Scottish Sun.

"Amadou Konte - basketball player."

At the same time and much to the annoyance of the Hibs support, Derek Riordan was withdrawn and replaced by Amadou Konte. It’s a pretty fair bet that most of the Hibs fans there thought Mowbray had lost the plot but time would prove his substitutions to be a master stroke.

Lets just hope Nade doesn't do a Konte against us! :paranoid:

Half of Konte's problem was he looked so comical. He was actually quite effective a few times - Hearts, Motherwell and (IIRC) Celtic to name three games!

Edit - I would also like to point out that he wasn't the worst player in the team at that time. Simon Brown was an awful goalkeeper, saved by the fact that while he only had one year exposing himself as utterly inept, Zibi had two.

Just found this page about Konte.
Gave me a laugh.
