Patson Daka is just a fantastic player- Salzburg coach
Redbull Salzburg head coach Jesse Marsch has heaped praise on Chipolopolo striker Patson Daka ahead this evening UEFA Champions League play-off second leg encounter against Israeli side Maccabi Tel Aviv.
The American gaffer described the Zambian forward as a fantastic player who has done very well. Marsch also praised the 2017 CAF young player of the year’s character both on and off the pitch.
He went on to reveal that working with the 2017 U-20 AFCON winner and former Power Dynamos striker is a lot of fun and that he really enjoys coaching the Zambian.
“Patson has played fantastically Well, we can say Patson has played very well and also the character he shows on and off the pitch and the daily work that he invests am just enjoying being his coach. He is a great lad on and off the pitch, he is hardworking and he is a little fast. It’s a just lot of fun working with him and I hope he continues with this development he has a lot of potential, he is just a fantastic player,” Marsch said during a pre-match press conference yesterday.
Patson Daka has become one of the most influential players in Jesse Marsch’s squad. Daka scored 24 league goals last season to help Salzburg to a record 14th title and this season he is already on seven goals in all competitions in just five appearances.
