Kansas City coach Peter Vermes praises Latif Blessing’s performance

Kansas City coach manager Peter Vermes has heaped praise on Ghanaian attacker Latif Atta Blessing after the 20-year-old scored twice in the team’s 2-2 draw with Orlando Magic.

Latif Blessing became the youngest player to score a brace in a competitive game for Kansas City and Coach Vermes was hugely impressed by his performance.

“He did a great job coming in. He was very busy, he has a great nose for a goal, he found himself in many situations and he was relentless and for a lad like him that is important, “he said after the game.

Latif Blessing lasted 82 minutes in a game that saw him win the hearts of Kansas fans.

The diminutive winger joined Kansas from Liberty professionals after winning the Most Valuable Player in the Ghana Premier League.
