Mixed feelings for Dayo Omosuyi after Hidd SCC's Super Cup win

20 October 2015, 16:10

Manama - Dayo Omosuyi was delighted that Hidd SCC added another trophy to their cabinet, following their penalty shootout win against Muharraq in the Super Cup on Monday afternoon.

There was a lot of interest back home in the game staged at the Khalifa Stadium, as two other Nigerian players are on the books of Hidd SCC in the form of Akarandut Orok and Uche Agba.

With the scoreboard reading 1-0 in favour of Muharraq, Omosuyi was introduced as Hidd SCC searched for the equalizer which they managed to achieve before triumphing 5-4 on penalties.

''If I had started the match, we would have probably won in regulation time, I am presently the highest goal scorer for the team and I still scored in the match before this,'' Omosuyi lamented to news24.

''I was the highest goal scorer for the club last season, I think the idea and tactics of keeping your best player on the bench to bring him in as a joker is outdated.

''It actually worked for us yesterday in the game but it won't work every time.''

The 24 year old further revealed that the major stakeholders at Hidd SCC were unhappy with the decision of the coach to omit him from the starting XI.

He said: ''Our management and fans also don't agree with this, but thank God we won.''
