Figo thrilled after leading Cosmos to massive win


Jomo Cosmos Captain, Linda “Figo” Mntambo says he’s more than thrilled to lead Ezenkosi to last Sunday’s crushing 5-0 defeat of University of Pretoria in his first official capacity as team skipper.

“It was indeed a good feeling to captain the team to such crucial victory, but even more importantly the win underlined our desire to work together, be dedicated and focused.

“Our intentions are clear this season: to go out there and make it happen,” he said.

Similarly, he stressed on the importance of avoiding last season’s inconsistencies that cost the team a place in the top three, and ultimate promotion.

“So far I think we’ve started well but we must try not to get carried away by the big win over Tuks. There’s still so much to do, and we must stop giving points away and avoid the mistakes of last season,” he reflected.

Cosmos next NFD fixture is away to NFD new boys, Tshakuma Tsha Madzivhadila on September 9 in Thohoyandou.
