I play a online football game which has its own newspaper with stories about the game. One story goes like this
"White handkerchiefs for cihanns lion.
LONDON - cihanns lion has been the manager of West Ham United this season. The 35-year old manager was appointed after last season’s bad results. Cihanns lion, with just 19 matches worth of experience, cannot yet boast about a prominent career. At this point, he can only rely on his charisma when representing the club in front of the press. He is hoping West Ham United will be a step in the right direction for his career as a manager.
West Ham United is currently undergoing tough times. Manager cihanns lion’s team has to settle for a mere tenth place in the rankings. The club has a lot more potential than that, which cihanns lion himself also admitted: “I still have faith that performance will improve, I wouldn’t still be here if I didn’t. But it’s up to the players to show what they’re really capable of on the field.”
I cannot work out what this expression means. Anyone can help?
