The Rise Of Mbwana Samatta

imageIf you follow me on twitter then you will know that i rave on about the Tanzanian International Mbwana Samatta. But you may or may not know that he has finally made his big money move to Europe after another great season for TP Mazembe helping them to win the African Champions League scoring a floury of goals. 19 goals and 6 assists in the competition. At the age of 23 there was no doubt in anyones minds that the Captain of the Tanzanian National team would finally get the move to Europe he deserved. Belgium Pro League side Genk signed the player for around £600k which is a great price for the man who won the “best african player playing in Africa” award. And considering he has bagged over 90 goals already in his career he is guaranteed to bring goals to Belgium. Even for his national team he has been impressive scoring 19 times for the teamimage
Genk have got their hands on a great young talent who will score all kinds of goals and will bring pace to the side who have already signed another great talent who i admire in Nikos Karelis. At such a young age I believe that Genk is a great place for Mbwana to showcase to clubs his talent and in the future may grant him a move to an even bigger side. A move to the Premier League one day would be brilliant for the lad but that is in due time. Mbwana Samatta is a gem of a player and this season for Genk with the right playing time you should all see how good of a player he really is. I honestly and truly believe he is the greatest Tanzanian Player Of All Time no doubt about it.image
