Mustaqim Manzur: We plan to go all the way
By Andrew Ang on 11 July 2014
One of the most consistent performers in the league and cup competitions this season, Mustaqim Manzur has been a constant menace for opposition full backs this season. Strong on both feet, Mustaqim’s set pieces have resulted in numerous goals this season for the Eagles.
Against Tampines Rovers, the winger finally bagged a well-deserved goal. Mustaqim’s last goal had come several weeks ago in a Singapore Cup tie with Woodlands Wellington and he expressed his delight at netting.
Speaking to Eagles TV, he said: “It’s quite a relief actually. It’s great to break the duck to score, although it was not clean, I’ll take it.”
The win over the Stags was also a sign that the Eagles have been working hard according to Mustaqim.
The winger revealed: “After the previous disappointments of not getting enough results, the boys have been putting in the effort.”
With a spectacular start to the league cup campaign, Mustaqim felt the side stood a good chance and hoped the Starhub league cup campaign would end well. With confidence, he said: “Hopefully we can progress in the cup. The sky is the limit, so we plan to go all the way.”
