Sanneh named MOM in Midtjylland win

Gambia defender Bubacarr Sanneh put up a man-of-the-match performance on his full start for FC Midtjylland who bolstered their chances of winning the Danish league with a 2-1 home win over SønderjyskE on Sunday.

The Scorpions international, who had not played for Midtjylland since their victories over AC Horsens and Hobro IK last month, was handed a first start by coach Jess Thorup who favored him in his 3-4-3 formation.

The former Real de Banjul captain produced a stunning display by guiding Midtjylland to go joint top on the Danish top-tier with a 2-1 win at the MCH Arena in Herning.

His performance also saw him being voted Man of the Match by the club’s supporters after the match.

Buba, who goes by his moniker of Timber, has been invited for the Scorpions’ friendly against the Central African Republic on Friday at the Independence Stadium in Bakau.
