The Englishman has applauded skills showcased by Ghanaian striker Gilbert Fiamenyo and youngster Marcellus Ingotsi, who scored a goal each in their 3-0 victory. Following the win, the coach vividly explained abilities of the players with a clear reason why midfielder Paul Kiongera, who scored the third goal, is also a major pillar at Ingwe.
“Fiamenyo is great, especially when he has the ball. He has the ability of getting into good goal scoring positions. He is also quite intelligent, although he has one weakness.
"When we don’t have the ball, he cannot run and that is why you have to have him partner with a speedy player such as Kiongera. Kiongera does his job when we don’t have possession.
“I did not start Ingotsi during the Nakumatt game, but that is only because he is a young player. I didn’t want him to be part of all the pressure we were facing now that this was our first match.
"He is the quickest player in our team so I deliberately brought him in in the last 15 minutes, when the other players are tiring. With his speed, a goal was almost a guarantee, “he told the league’s official website.
AFC Leopards have four strikers listed for the 2017 season. The other two are Vincent Oburu and Alfred Wekesa.
