Patson Seized His Opportunities and Thrives, says Maresca
Leicester City head coach Enzo Maresca was full of praise for Chipolopolo striker Patson Daka during his pre-match press conference.
The Italian gaffer says he loves a player like Patson who can link up well in attack when asked about the Zambian international.
Maresca wants the former Redbull Salzburg forward to keep helping his side until the end of the season as they push for an immediate return to the English Premier League.
ON PATSON DAKA’S IMPACT 🇿🇲
“PATSON TOOK HIS CHANCES AND IS DOING WELL. I REALLY LIKE A PLAYER LIKE HIM, HE CAN LINK WELL IN ATTACK. THE MORE THAT HE LINKS, THE MORE HE CAN ATTACK IN BEHIND. HE IS QUICK AND STRONG, HOPEFULLY HE CAN HELP US MORE BEFORE THE END OF THE SEASON.” PIC.TWITTER.COM/M4PNWVKOYR
