Etienne Fonyuy alias “Sadio Mane” is not the biggest but he has proven to be the strongest and fastest among those who are the best.
The 18-year old footballer may not have earn a call into any topflight division one team or to any national selection but he is one to go home with, given that he is a tough-tackling left back with the warrior-like spirit. He is a pacey left back who dribbles the ball down the wing before delivering a pinpoint cross.
As a defender and bearing in mind that being in the right position is of almost importance in a football game, Fonyuy’s positioning in the game allows him to read the game, anticipate the play, and prevent himself from being caught out.
In short, perfect positioning, match awareness, co-ordination, leadership, technical ability, marking, great aerial ability, superb tackling, stamina, speed, athleticism, and tactical knowledge are just some attributes that puts Etienne Fonyuy above many players.
His sharp and powerful crosses causes a lot of threat to the opponent. Blessed with speed and strength, he is also able to pick out passes further up the pitch adding to his dynamism. Perhaps what is more special about him and his skills is that he is able to combine with the defenders, midfielders and attackers. To the attackers, he is able to provide them with goal scoring chances.
Free-kicks and volleys on that side of the pitch are a thing of real beauty for him as he switches from defence to attack, and vice versa. He is dynamic and has great technique and brilliant movement. As converted left-winger, Fonyuy has the instinct to get forward whenever he can to support his attackers. His energy, pressing, and all-round desire to produce the best possible performance.
All of these skills and many more have been seen in some teams and in some major competitions around the nation’s capital city, Yaounde. From Rain Bow FC to Bamenda FC, America for Africa FC, Foundation Taffi FC, Simaf Football Academy, Santos FC and to the Bui Sport Fans Competition in Yaounde, his abilities have greatly improved. He has also had an outstanding performance. While waiting for the right moment to prove himself, he is training hard in Bamenda.
