Namungo FC forward opens up on his success in CAF Confederation Cup

TANZANIA's Namungo FC's striker, Ghanaian Stephen Sey, who has scored five goals for the team in this season's Confederation of African Football (CAF) Confederation Cup, has said that there is no success without dedication, discipline and responsibility.

Sey said every time he plays for Namungo FC in either the domestic league or the CAF Confederation Cup, he considers two issues.

According to the player, he first sees to it he does not let down a coach, who trusted him, and moreover value the discipline he chose for his own income.

In the tournament, Sey scored two goals against Al Rabita of South Sudan in the preliminary stage as his team emerged with a 3-0 victory, scoring on 20th and 38th minutes.

The forward went on to score against Al Hilal Obayed of Sudan in the first round, Namungo FC won 2-0 against the former in the first clash, which took place at Azam Complex in Dar es Salaam.

In the second tie, which was held in Kharthoum, the two clubs fought to a 3-3 draw, with Sey finding his way into the score sheet.

Sey moreover netted for Namungo FC in their 6-2 drubbing of C.D. Primeiro de Agosto of Angola in the tournament's first clash of play offs, which took place at Azam Complex.

"The CAF Confederation Cup is competitive and we meet teams with different experiences, the main thing is to respect the work and dedication to fight for the team to achieve its goals in cooperation with coaches and our leaders," he said.

He said the achievement came about thanks to his willingness to fight for the outfit, and not for his personal interest, a move which has seen them make it to the play offs.

The forward revealed: ''Despite being the leading scorer, we have many players that have what it takes to score goals, they are Sixtus Sabilo, Blaise Bigirimana, Reliants Lusajo, Shiza Kichuya, Edward Manyama (now a Ruvu Shooting player) and Hashim Manyanya, all of whom have scored, so you can understand how we fight for our team.''

He disclosed: "We want to challenge for progression to the group stage, those other goals will come before the trip, I believe if we fight we will live our dream, despite beating CD Primeiro de Agosto we will respect the rematch and we are well prepared.''
