Following an impressive run in which they have won all four games, Sadolin Paints assistant Coach Samadu Msafiri has reasons to smile.
The Painters were average in the first round of the league something Msafiri attributes to injuries and has hailed striker Allan Oryek’s contribution since return labeling him as the team’s spine.
“We were struggling who to field but at least now I have most players fit,” he told upl.co.ug in an interview. “The goals were also hard to come by but I can say Allan Oryek’s recent form has really raised the team spirit. He has been so influential and his work rate has improved a lot even without the ball,” he added. At first he was good upfront but failed to fall back but that has changed. He runs and supports everywhere,” Msafiri added.
Although Oryek hasn’t scored regularly, Msafiri believes his contribution in lead up to goals has been imperative.
“The position I deployed him is to transit the ball to the other strikers and that’s why you may not see a lot of his goals. However, in our previous four wins, he has a hand in all the six goals and has directly assisted four.”
The former team skipper has also set eyes on a national team call up and seeks consistence.
“Iam humbled that the coaches, teammates and a lot of media has been watching my progress,” he stated. “Its true goals have been hard to come but I have created the goals that have won us matches especially in away games but the most important thing is team victory. My target is to be at the top and make to the Cranes,” Oryek added.
Sadolin will be back in action on Saturday 16th against bottom of the table Maroons with an opportunity to make it five in five.
