Goalkeeper Daniel Swenwetee did not have enough playing time in the previous league campaign as the substitute goalkeeper of Monrovia Club Breweries. Despite making few appearances, the goalkeeper says he is considering staying at the club amid several clubs interested in signing him.
Reports claimed that the young goal stopper was planning to leave the club at the end of the previous campaign due to the limited playing time and his contract expiring at the end of last season.
However, Swenwetee said it’s now time for him to show his class following the departure of former teammate, goalkeeper Abdulai Koulibaly to Barrack Young Controllers in September.
“Though I haven’t reached an agreement with Breweries to extend my contract, I am willing to play for the club and looking forward to a mutual negotiation that will let me remain with the club,” he said.
Swenwetee formed part of Coach Francis Saploh’s starting lineup during the team’s first match in the second half of the season. Breweries suffered a 2-0 defeat after Zackie Bannie scored a brace to collect all three points for Jubilee FC on April 13.
Swenwetee last season traveled with the team for the return leg of the CAF Confederation Cup against J.S. Kabylie in Algeria. He said he is prepared to compete for the starting position on the team.
“I didn’t play many games last season, but I did my best when I was afforded the opportunity to play. Perhaps the team may bring another goalkeeper on board but my aim is to work hard, remain focus and make the most of the minutes I get and give myself the opportunity to start in more games next season,” he said.
He said the new season is going to be better than the previous one and expressed optimism of the team winning titles. “We can assure our fans that we are going to put the needed smiles on their faces in the upcoming season.”
Monrovia Club Breweries will this Thursday play NPA Anchors in the opening match of the LISCR Trust Tournament at the Antoinette Tubman Stadium.
