Timbe denies he is a selfish player

06 September 2016, 17:20

Nairobi - Kenya international Ayub Timbe Masika has dismissed the notion that he is not a team player, after getting on the score-sheet against Zambia at the weekend.

The 23-year-old Masika grabbed the opening strike for the Harambee Stars in the 1-1 draw with Chipolopolo on Sunday.

The Kenyans had a disappointing run in the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations in Group E, recording one win, one draw and three losses.

"Normally most people expect wingers to assist goals in a game of football but football has changed whereby you see wingers also scoring," Masika told Soka.

"If I have a chance to penetrate the defence and score then I will do it but again in a team, there are two things; individual and team work, both go hand in hand, a team wins at times because of individual brilliance or teamwork.

"I always work hard to get a better result in any game. I am happy to score for the country again as it keeps my CV high to continue doing my best hoping for better things.

"We almost snatched a win in Zambia, having held them for the better part of the game, but that last-minute goal denied us what could have been a deserved win."

Masika currently plies his trade in Belgium's second division, having joined Lierse SK from Belgian Pro League outfit Genk on a three-year deal in July.
