Quincy named player of month in Denmark

HARARE - Zimbabwean Quincy Antipas has been named player of month in the Danish top-flight league for August.

Antipas was rewarded for shaping his club Hobro’s remarkable start to the Danish Super League. The North Jutland-based club is currently in third place with four wins, two draws and one defeat.

The former Brondby forward has so far made six league appearances for Hobro, scoring two goals and providing two assists.

“It has obviously been a positive start for me as well as the team. It’s always good when the team is winning, you play better,” Antipas told Danish media this week.

It is not the first time Antipas has been named player of the month in the Super League.

The 30-year-old, who has played for Motor Action and CAPS United in his home country Zimbabwe, was also crowned best player of the month in April of 2012, when he was still turning out for SønderjyskeE.

A product of Prince Edward School in Harare, Antipas hopes the accolade will spur him to greater heights.

“You have to work hard everyday. You can never stop practising, work on your first touch, work on your conditioning, that’s what a professional is all about,” Antipas said.

The Hobro website also showered praise on the Warriors midfielder.

“Congratulations to Quincy, who not only has played directly into the hearts of our home crowd, but also by the country’s football experts.”

Antipas is not the only Zimbabwean in fine form in the Danish league.

His fellow countryman, SønderjyskeE forward Silas Songani, has also been at the centre of glowing reviews for his stunning start to his Europe career, which has been decorated with a goal reminiscent of Gareth Bale’s Copa Del Rey beauty against Barcelona.

Ironically, Antipas and Songani were on opposite sides on Monday when their two respective clubs clashed.

In that match, Antipas provided the assist for Mads Hvilsom to level matters for Hobro as the match ended 1-1.

On the opposite end, Songani’s blistering pace and skill down the right wing earned him the man of the match award.

Team coaches have described Songani as a “fantastic” player while his manager concedes he may lose him to the German Bundesliga sooner rather than later.

“Silas is a fantastic, fast player, incredibly good in one on ones, and we have also trained him to get into the box and make situations more dangerous,” SønderjyskE coach Lars Søndergaard told TV3 Sport.

“He has struggled a bit with the language, but he comes from Zimbabwe. He plays naturally. It takes some time to get him trained as we want him.”
