The words of Vitor Gouveia, Angola’s deputy technical commissioner, about Cagliari striker Zito Luvumbo
The deputy technical commissioner ofAngola, Vitor Gouveiagranted an exclusive interview with Sportitaliain which he spoke about the player of Cagliari, Zito Luvumbo. Here is an excerpt from his statements.
LUVUMBO – “He is our ‘baby’, we expect a lot from him because he has exceptional physical abilities, enormous strength… He is explosive, which allows him to reach top speed in a few seconds.” Technically he is a good player and very fast, he can play as a winger if you use a formation that includes that role, otherwise also as a striker, as happened in Cagliari.”
AFRICAN CUP CALL – “I can’t answer that because we have a lot of options. But if he continues to play like he has been, he definitely has a chance of being nominated. What he is working on is the fact that he can be decisive in the many opportunities he creates and that is where he could take the decisive step from a good player to a top player. The good things he does, he must aim to do them more often. He has the potential to do that..
IMPROVE – “There are several aspects to consider. From a physical perspective, he has everything to get there. From a technical point of view he won’t be the best in the world, but he has a good base and is young enough to improve. So yes, with the experience he has gained he will be able to reach a really high level. We will help him with that and then he will play at a club like Cagliari, in Serie A, and that will make him grow.”.
CAGLIARI – “We don’t have much time to talk about personal situations in clubs. But I think he had a lot of difficulties along the way and has now made it to Serie A at a young age. He has a lot of character and great hunger. He seems happy and has confidence in Cagliari. He must continue like this without forgetting the difficulties he has been through.”.
