Nkosi, Fernandez helping Katongo

Posted: 17 September 2008 Time: 1:14 pm

After playing four games and scoring one goal since he started playing for Arminia Bielefeld in Germany this season, Zambian striker Chris Katongo is confident of success in the Bundesliga.

Katongo, signed by Arminia Bielefeld from Brondby IF at the start of the new season, is among the African contingent that coach Michael Frontzek is looking to changing the team’s fortune after a terrible start to the current league campaign.

“I would say, so far so good, and I’m enjoying myself in Germany,” Katongo told KickOff.com.

“The coach has been using me more as an attacking midfielder than a striker, but still I don’t have any problem with that as I have played many positions in my career.”

Katongo, who has taken his wife and one-year-old son, Chris Junior, to Germany, is also full of praise for his South African teammates Siyabonga Nkosi and Rowen Fernandez, who have made things easier for him to settle in well in Germany.

“Both Rowen and Siyabonga are like brothers to me. They came here before me and they took time off to show me around. They are fantastic guys and I have since developed great friendships with both of them.”

The going says "to forgive is to set the prisnor free and discover that the prisnor was you".

Lets forgive Gary Goldstone. Gordon says the guy he is no longer enjoying life in training . So, guys i believe Gary has ears and he listen, why do we forgive him? The guy has been punished, Appologised,& try to call Bulu which shows sign he admit the wrong doing. people keep influence war between players " WHICH MUST STOP".Don't influence war between players. It happens in sokka where by a player get out of emotions & misbehave.for instance, Zidane deliberately heat Mettarazi on his face, but they publicly forgive each other and put the matter under the carpet.Gary is longer living healthy life,because of people who a lways after him. An eye for an eye will not solve the problem. lets forgive. SUFFER & PSL dispoint me for wantin 2 take action agaisnt gary, who has already punished. Psl and SUFER want to put themselves under pressure. Fire to fire will not work out.

I'm writing this from a broken heart.

No favours or sympathy...If u break da rules U get punished...Otherwise everyone will be doing it & expecting to be forgiven...It's simple u break the law & face the music.I wish the PSL DC can give him a harsh sentence...what he deserve.i think the message got 2 da ears of those who were thinking that since it's Wafa Wafa on weekend they do their tricks 2 injure sum targeted players...sum of them plan that even before the game.Khosi 4 Life.

Soccer Critic ( Tivani )......you are the example of people who hide criminals in this country, no wonder crime in SA is becoming more like an everyday life....

Goldstone deserves nothing but a sentence that will get rid of him in the field of play, these are the concequences of his deeds.....

Soccer Critic ( Tivani ), punished by who?

So, if you commit a crime, then you parents punish you, then does that mean you off the hook?

No....this guy will of cause not harm his team mate but his opponent during a live match.....is that what the young stars are supposed to learn? that if you do that to your opponent, then you will get away with it? NO BOSS.....

This guy must be removed from the field of play.......

I also condemn this guy Larson, I mean he said all the psl teams can expect that from them, what is that supposed to mean?

Critic, this is worth critisizing boss......

How do you expect to be forgiven if u dont have a heart that forgives. but, guys this guy is a monster. He deserves a year out of football coz that was intentional. It wasnt a professional foul as he claims. By the way, mabhakaniya ningakhali bafethu, this season is ours. mark my words
