The waiter at the Brighton restaurant ordered for Yves Bissouma while he was learning English

A RESTAURANT manager recalled one of his waiters ordering an Albion star while he was learning English.

Yves Bissouma said goodbye to his favorite restaurant in town after joining Tottenham Hotspur.

Staff at Regency Restaurant in King’s Road, Brighton said it was great to see him before he left.

“He came in to say goodbye, which was very nice,” said restaurant director Roberto Savvides. “Then we also saw the post online, which was great.”

The 25-year-old shared a series of pictures of him saying goodbye to restaurant staff.

Roberto said that Bissouma, who was a regular, had trouble reading the menu so one of his waiters took it upon himself to order for the footballer.

“He’s been a regular down here ever since he arrived in Albion,” he said. “He was just walking in and one of our waiters, Michalis Skurti, recognized him straight away. He is crazy about football and knows all the players.

“He said, ‘Yves, come in, my friend, sit down.’ Just made him feel welcome.

“He would normally order for him. His English wasn’t perfect so he struggled with the menu. But the waiter took it upon himself to order for him. He’d say, ‘Right, there’s this dish today. Tomorrow you will have this and the next this.”

Bissouma joined Spurs last month for an undisclosed fee that could rise to over £30million.

Roberto said all staff were sad to see him leave the club.

“He’s a very, very nice guy. He keeps himself,” he said. “Always make sure to say help to all employees though. He clearly has a great attitude.”

In a post on Instagram alongside pictures of him signing an Albion shirt and posing for photos with staff, Bissouma said: “Before my mother came to take me to eat, I used to eat here at this restaurant every day, and this guy helped me a lot for meals.

“I came to thank you with a shirt for everything.”

Following Bissouma’s departure, Albion head coach Graham Potter said: “The transfer is very good for the club and the player. Yves has shown his undoubted skills and has been an important player for us during his time with us.

“Now he has a new challenge at Tottenham including the opportunity to play Champions League football and everyone at the club wish him well.”

After the transfer was confirmed, Bissouma revealed his ambitions with his new team.

“It’s my dream to play the Champions League,” he said.

“I remember when I was younger I watched the Champions League every day. I can’t believe (I will) play in the Champions League with Spurs.

“I’m so happy, I just want to say thank you to my mum, dad and my agent here, thanks to everyone, thanks to Spurs too.” The waiter at the Brighton restaurant ordered for Yves Bissouma while he was learning English
