Dickson, the mastermind

July 7, 2015

Hitman Dickson Nwakaeme is happy to turn provider so long as Pahang keep winning matches.

The goal machine has not found the back of the net often this season but is seen as a crucial asset to the team as he constantly torments opposing defenders, setting his teammates for a crack on goal.

The Nigerian insists he loves getting on the scoresheet just like every other player but would happily provide once again against Sarawak at the Darul Makmur Stadium on Wednesday.

“I try so hard in every game to score. Sometimes I don’t get into those positions because I am assisting the team to create chances,” he said.

“I’m a team player and so long as Pahang wins, it doesn’t matter who scores.”

Nwakaeme scored two of Pahang’s 10 goals in the last four matches. He assisted in more than half of the other goals.

In the 3-1 over Selangor last weekend, Nwakaeme was at his best as he constantly made Selangor defenders look amateur with his neat footwork. At times, it took four defenders to stop him.

Pahang are top of the Super League league with 30 points and could go five clear of second place Johor Darul Takzim (JDT), who only play Selangor next week.
