The former Zoo FC player hopes the Brewers can take advantage of the victory and pocket their fifth national cup
Tusker FC midfielder Michael Madoya is optimistic that his performance in the 9-0 victory over Mihuu United of the National Division II in the Kenya Football Federation Shield Cup on Sunday will give him more opportunities in upcoming assignments.
The former Zoo FC player captained the Brewers and scored a hat-trick, with other goals from Luke Namanda, who scored a double, Henry Meja, George Odhiambo, Charles Ashitiva and Apollo Otieno. The creative midfielder also explained how it felt to win by a greater margin to advance to the round of 32.
“It was a great feeling because this is something that everyone expects and that is what I have been working on in training,” Madoya said as quoted by the club. official portal.
“I was very happy to score and help the team.
“Captaining the team was also a great honor for me, also in the sense that we had the highest score of the weekend. This is a great motivation to keep going because I think things will fit together now.”
The midfielder has been used sparingly by the 11-time league champions recently. However, being out of the team for too long has done little to demoralize him.
“It was a very challenging period to be away without playing because everyone wants to contribute to the team and when you don’t have a chance, it affects you,” Madoya continued.
“But I didn’t lose my morale and I kept working and being patient because I knew my opportunity would come. These are always difficult times for a player, but the best thing is always how to get out of the situation.”
Madoya has now set her sights on helping the Robert Matano-led charges go all the way and win their fifth Shield Cup.
“I think we have the ability to go all the way and lift the Cup. We have the depth and everyone is working hard to make sure we succeed this season.”
The Ruaraka-based charges are also aiming to win the Kenyan Football Federation Premier League this season. They have been consistent and currently lead the rankings with 26 points from 11 games.
