#GarudaSelect's Director of Football, Dennis Wise selected the best player in the match against Mansfield U18. The performance of the Tanzanian defender Shabani Mbwana Kingazi impressed Coach Dennis the most.
Against Mansfield U18, Shabani, whose original position is a left-back, played as a center back. He played the full game in the first half and came on as a substitute in the second half to replace the injured Putu Dipa in the 53rd minute.
"I chose Shabani as the man of the match. He played solidly in guarding the defense by continuously having the right positioning. I think Shabani's performance is very good," said Coach Dennis.
Shabani himself doesn't want to be satisfied quickly. He wants to play even better in the next match. "I am happy to hear Coach Dennis's comments because I feel the match against Mansfield U18 is not easy. I learned a lot in the match and I hope that the coach can trust me again to play in the next match," said Shabani.
Regarding the coach’s decision to assign him as a center back, Shabani has no problem at all. "As a prospective professional footballer, I have to be ready to be placed in any position and I have no problem with that," explained Shabani.
