“Fantastic” – Coach Of Sparta Salute Performance Of Super Eagles Goalkepper Maduka Okoye Despite Defeat
Coach of Sparta Rotterdam Henk Frase says his team 1-2 loss to PSV Rotterdam was super disappointing after they conceded twice in the final nine minutes of the game despite the performance of Nigeria international goalkepper Maduka Okoye.
Okoye was imperious between the sticks for Sparta Rotterdam making as many as five saves in the first half before making three more in the second half. He ended up conceding twice with goals from Ibrahim Sangare and Ryan Thomas proving too difficult for him to stop.
Fraser admitted after the game that the performance of the 22 year old Nigerian kept his team in the game terming his display as fantastic and the sole positive to take from the loss which further compound their poor start to the season.
“But you do take it into account, because PSV has a lot of quality and had already had many opportunities. Madu had some fantastic saves, otherwise we would have fallen behind earlier. Now the disappointment prevails, but I have already complimented my players in the dressing room for the battle they have put in”, the coach said after the game.
”The plan we had was right, we just don’t have any points. We have to take the good feeling with us to the next matches, otherwise it wouldn’t have been worth anything.’
