KF Tirana player Winful Cobbina has expounded on why he sometimes disappear in games after popping up with a remarkable assist in their 2-1 win against Kukesi on Friday.

Cobbina started the match against Kukesi brightly but faded midway through the encounter before coming up with a fantastic assist.

The former Hearts of Oak ace conjured a magic in the 84th minute to provide a Ronaldinho-like assist for Idriz Batha to tap into an empty net during the top of table clash against Kukesi.

“It's the second season here and I'm adjusted to the environment, the people and the system. So I'm in better shape. We are convincingly back as a team and not without merit leading the championship.”

“Sometimes it's a game plan, a tactic. I have to rest and then "boom". My disappearance is for energy recovery. Would you leave me alone for 70 minutes? You have to train with us to understand. It's not that I'm tired, but we have to adapt to the game and hit the opponent at the right time.”

"Favorites in attack? Both are good players. Mucci is young and talented, Michael has experience. It is important that the players' abilities go to the benefit of the team. Both did their part. I can't choose who to play with, we're all a team.”

He has made 20 league appearances, contributing 4 goals and 3 assists.
