On scoring his first goal for the club, he said, ”
I’ve been pushing and working hard in training, and while it’s taken me a while to get going, I’m overjoyed to have scored my first goal for the club.” The achievement has given me the much-needed confidence to move forward.
On whether the goal has lifted some pressure on him,
As a striker and a foreign player, there is always pressure to perform. I was brought in to help boost the team’s attack, but it has taken me a while to hit the ground running. I am relieved to have finally found the back of the net, but not entirely, as we need more maximum points as a team to move up in the standings.
On his expectations before the season ends,
As a striker, one needs confidence to be able to perform at their best. I hope this is the first of many goals to come because I really want to help the team in pushing for top five honors.
On the Mathare United game:
Despite their current woes, we are facing a very unpredictable team, and this calls for a lot of concentration and clinical goal-scoring. I hope to help the team win for the third time in a row.
