Weather leaves Tangerines midfielder cold

Weather leaves Tangerines midfielder cold

Dundee United midfielder Morgaro Gomis was left stranded in his own house for two days and too scared to drive to training because of the dreadful wintry weather.

The Senegal international has never experienced such conditions before as the big chill continues to sweep the country with snowstorms and blizzards.

"This is without doubt the worst snow I've seen since I've been in Scotland. It has been crazy," Gomis told the Daily Record. "It's been so bad I was stuck in my house for two days. I basically couldn't get out and I wasn't going to risk driving either.

"I was really scared I might get stuck on the road if I took the car," he added. "So I've been getting Barry Douglas to give me a lift into training as he lives almost next door to me. For those two days when I couldn't move I just spent my time watching TV although I'd much rather have been training or playing."
