postheadericon Kimpioka Looks Forward For More First-Team Chances

Benjamin Kimpioka, the Swedish footballer is with under-18 of Sweden and gives an interview in depth on his first team performances. Kimpioka said that the debut in Sunderland gave him the motivation to perform better and also sustain his position in the first team of Black Cat.

Sweden under 18 international did score within 3 minutes at the very beginning for the club. His performance did impress Jack Ross, the manager and made Kimpioka eager to make the best out of such opportunities in the near future. It was indeed fun to have performed so brilliantly for the first time and he is grateful for the inspiration he gets from his coach.

To score a goal in the cup was definitely a great bonus and it motivated him to work harder to obtain more opportunities. There is a huge difference when you get to play debut team football with professionals living with full-time football. In addition, there is more pressure and Kimpioka loves to play with. It motivates him to do better each time he plays under pressures.

It is not the same when you play an under 23 match with 1000 people in comparison with playing with the first team and here there 30,000 people not only watching but judging as well. There are higher demands of the team too, and the player likes it when he gets the best of himself each time.

Ross has always given an opportunity to youth since he became a manager and fielded 10 graduates from Academy of Light this season. Many youngsters such as Lee Connelly and Jack Diamond made their first performance against Carlisle and Ethan Robson; the fellow academy graduate did get on the score sheet. There are several other players who have had great chances and it’s good to grab the opportunity when it comes.
