Canon Sportive of yaounde’s goal machine Alphonse Kevin Assiga, has stated that he wants to finish the 2019_2020 campaign as the best striker in the Cameroon league one Championship.
Assiga played just 37 minutes of his side’s zero all tie against Bamboutos FC of Mbouda on Wednesday night at the Ngoa Ekelle Stadium, after coming in at the 53rd minute, to replace Yannick Tagne Wambo. Though he failed to add his goal tally this season which currently stands at 87 goals, the forward is still confident that he can finish the league top of the goal scorers chart.
“When I’m in the field, I give all my energy to take three points for my team”, said Assiga.
“When you are a striker, you are supposed to score many goals as possible for your team to take maximum points”, he added.
Apart from being Canon’s top scorer this season with eight goals, Assiga is also the league’s second top scorer alongside Union’s Captain Samuel, with eight goals each, two goals short of the league’s top scorer, PWD’s Leon Boyomo.
Assiga is determined to overthrow Boyomo and Co for the top spot. “I have eight goals, it’s good, but I want to score more and finish as the best striker in the league”, said the Canon forward.
Alphonse Kevin Assiga has the best goal scoring ratio amongst all the players at the top of goal scorers chart, as he has notched home eight goals in just 15 games. He missed six of Canon’s 21 games this season, due to a shortly spell in North Africa.
Assiga is just one of five players to have scored three or more goals in a single league game this season, with his hat trick against AVION Academy of Nkam in Limbe on January 29, 2020,a game which Canon won 3#1. He also came off the bench in Bamenda on February 05, 2020 in a day 20 game, and scored a stunning free kick, to hand Canon an emphatic 2#0 win over PWD.
Assiga will be hoping to get off the mark when Canon host Dragon on match day 22 in yaounde, before hosting Fovu on the 23rd day of action.
