Improving Shambi draws glowing praise

Ibrahim Shambi has attracted praise from The Don for his growth as a player

Ibrahim Shambi was among the key players in the team’s win over River Plate FC on Saturday 1st September as Ulinzi Stars opened the month with a convincing 4 – 1 win the SportPesa Shield quarter finals and the youthful midfielder has been praised for his performance and general growth.

Shambi led the Ulinzi Warriors (Ulinzi Stars U20) side to the KPL U20 title two years ago and since then he has risen as a player and head coach Dunstan Nyaudo has not missed the progress the Kenya U23 international has had in the team lately.

Defence and attack

In the River Plate game, he was key in both defence and attack and capped a fine afternoon with a stunning first half goal at Bukhungu Stadium, attracting glowing praise from The Don.

“Shambi has shown not just improvement in the past few matches but also good growth as a player. His performance in the River Plate game was just a glimpse of the man coming up in the boy. He showed good balance in his attacking and defensive play and I have to say I was impressed with his overall performance in the match.

“His awareness was on top and he will definitely get better as he continues learning,” the coach said.
