Cremonese Boss Ballardini Lavishes Praise On Super-Sub Dessers

Cremonese manager, Davide Ballardini showered encomium on Cyriel Dessers after the Nigerian impressive display in the defeat to Sassuolo.

Dessers, who came in as a substitute for Ghana forward, Afena Gyan scored a brace in the 3-2 defeat at the MAPEI Stadium.

The 28-year-old was injured for several weeks and was an unused substitute in the club’s previous two games.

The former Feyenoord star however showed his class with a superb performance against Sassuolo.

“He was very good, he did well. His assignment is to always play this way: bold, determined and then decisive,” Ballardini told reporters.

Dessers has scored five goals in 19 league appearances for Cremonese this season.

    This is the real deal after Osimene for the SE striking position. Then when we talk of supporting strikers playing behind them, we put Moffi n hopefully Akpom.

  • SE is blessed with potent strikers but short of reliable defenders

  • Sean 1 year ago

    In Genk, he scored most of this goals from the bench,
    In feyenoord, he started as a super sub.
    Yesterday, he scored two coming from the bench
    Against Algerian home based team, he scored after he came from the bench..
    Well… may be he can be our game changer as we already have starters in Osimhen and Moffi.

    Dessers quality is second to none in the Super Eagles.

    It is between Dessers and Osimhen in the Super Eagles.

    Moffi is not among the top three strikes we can rely on.

    I am still wondering why Coach Eguavoen and Oga Rohr intentionally omitted Dessers on their lists, and both managers paid dearly for their deeds.

    I hope Oga Paseiro won’t make the same mistake.

    I don’t have much to say about Dessers because I have said a lot about him before.

    Now, I have a goalie in the NPFL that Oga Paseiro should give a chance to.

    His name is Nwabali. That guy is a reliable goalkeeper in goal.

    Very tall, calm, and confident in his decision-making.

    I have never failed to recommend world-class players or goalies to our national teams.

    If we don’t take advantage of Nwabali now, nobody should complain or put the blame on Uzoho and Okoye. Just like Nigerians are complaining about the INEC at the moment. Ire o. God bless Nigeria!!!
