After Kabaev rose the interest from abroad for his goalscoring streak (35 this season in 34 games) that ‘menaces’ Cristiano Ronaldo in the Golden Boot challenge, another striker in the top 3 grabs the attention of media outside Estonia.

Manucho rose the interest of Ivorian media 225Sport. In a short article describing his career in Estonia since the difficult start at Kalju and his recent exploit at FC Infonet, the 24-year-old striker who reached Estonia when 19, he has not hidden his intentions. ‘I work to reach an higher league’ confessed to the online media in French language ‘my aim is to play with the Elephants (Ivory Coast national team –edit). I hope my efforts will pay back.

After a difficult start in Premium Liiga last season with FC Infonet (only 6 goals in 33 games), Manucho has led them to secure the 5th place (highest position for the club at its second season in top-flight) with his 25 goals in 28 games.

Manucho is second most-valued striker in our Optibet BEST XI at the moment, right behind Kabaev.

With Estonian season close to the end (last matchday on the 8th of November) the transfer market will re-open for the Ivorian to try and find a new accomodation.
