Goal Hero Babatunde Earns Raja Casablanca Coach’s Praise

By Johnny Edward:

Raja Casablanca manager Rachid Taoussi has praised Michael Babatunde’s display in the Saturday’s 2-1 win over Chabab Rif Al Hoceima.

Babatunde, who is now a subject of newspaper transfer speculation in Morocco, posted another man-of-the-match performance in the game as he scored his third goal of the season in his fifth straight appearance.

“Babatunde is playing with a huge expectation of pressure from the fans and he’s carrying the team well,” Taoussi told Raja’s official website.

Taoussi also added that there’s still lot more to come from the Nigerian international and former Volyn and Dnipro Dnipropetrovsk player.

The coach added: “He is playing in a position that he played at the (Brazil 2014) World Cup, in the hole which is his best role. The position is good for him. It’s easy for him to get into positions to shoot at goal so we expect more from him.”
