Thomas Agyepong praises Hibernian manager Neil Lennon after scoring debut goal

Manchester City loanee, Thomas Agyepong has applauded Hibernian manager Neil Lennon after scoring his first goal for the club in their 3-0 win over Dundee on Saturday.

The Ghanaian international replaced Martin Boyle in the 73rd minute and through and scored a superb solo effort to wrap up the three points.

The Ghanaian youngster has been adapting well at his new club and has hailed Hibernian gaffer for instilling confidence and braveness in his wingers to express themselves.

“We are Hibs – we want to dominate the game, have the ball all the time.

“The best way to defend is to have the ball – if you have the ball they can’t score, and the more we have the ball the more we can break teams down, create opportunities and score goals.

“That’s the manager’s philosophy and that’s how we want to play – that’s how football is played and everybody enjoys it.

“That’s what the gaffer wants from us – to get the ball and attack. We are wingers – we are there to create, we are there to take risks.

“He says as soon as you get the ball in the final third, take risks – get at them and once or twice we might get past and create chances.

“I’m a young winger – I’m going to make mistakes. The manager gives us the confidence in training – if we lose it then it doesn’t matter, do it again the next time and hopefully, it pays off.”

Hibernian, sit second on the league log with 11 points, five below leaders Hearts after matchday six.
