PWD’s thinker- man David Pagou led his boys to a narrow 1-2 victory over Al Ahly Tripoli on Wednesday November 18.
The gaffer took stern decisions, only a decided coach can make, beginning from his team selections. David Pagou, newly appointed assistant manager of the Intermediate Lions, left out captain Burinyuy Derrick. He equally played Nchindo John Bosco (creative midfielder), as an out-an-out center forward.
The gaffer then went for an uncharacteristic 3-3-3-1 formation, which crippled every ounce of the beautiful game Al Ahly Tripoli would have been hoping to showcase.
After the win, the former Cosmos and Renaissance coach told mysoccer24.com – ‘ it was a good game by the boys’.
Pagou continued: ‘after going one down, we equalised. We then did some changes at half time and increased our tempo.
‘Collins scored again like he did against Union. We are happy. We would continue preparations,’ an elated Pagou said.
Talking about the secret to victory, the gaffer then concluded on his main ingredient.
‘We defended as a block. That’s the only way we could succeed. I am happy my players Incorporated the playing style quite well’.
Coach David Pagou was away from the team for a while due to national duties, and only came back a day before his team took off to Libya.
Pagou will be looking to win the reversed fixture against Al Ahly Tripoli on Saturday, before travelling back to Cameroon the following week, to face Kaizer Chiefs.
