Pablo the FA Cup Hero
Sunday, 12th May 2013 10:57
Former Blue Pablo Couñago was the FA Cup final hero in Hong Kong yesterday, lashing in a 25-yard strike just after half-time as his side Kitchee defeated Sun Pegasus 1-0. The 33-year-old joined Kitchee in October and has now netted 10 times.
Couñago, who also picked up the Most Valuable Player award and a HK$10,000 [£839] bonus, in addition to HK$150,000 [£12,583] for winning the trophy, was delighted: "It's a great feeling. It's not only for me, but for the fans and the club."
Kitchee are also battling on other fronts and face an Asian Football Confederation Cup round of 16 match away against Malaysian club Kelantan this week before a domestic Super Cup play-off.
Couñago, who was previously playing in Vietnam with Đồng Tâm Long An, is out of contract at the end of the month and is unsure whether he will be staying with Kitchee.
The Spaniard's second spell with the Blues came to an end in the summer of 2011 when he was released having spent the previous season on loan at Crystal Palace.

Success Vs Attendance by WindsorBlue
With the transfer deadline imminent, and not much coming in, and potentially our best player out, we can only sit on the edge of our seats hoping for the best. There is not much we, as supporters, can do to directly impact the day-to-day running of the club.
The Long Ball Hump by Ipswichlove
Does it work? Some say yes. Some say no.Where are you? For one thing though, while Mick McCarthy is in charge of town this will be our way of playing football.
How Would We All Like the Club to Move Forward? by Luka
As I write this short blog we are hearing reports that Leicester want to sign David McGoldrick for £8 million.
Would the Grass Be Greener Without Mick McCarthy? by Nuggets
The dispiriting and uninspiring defeat to Norwich was undoubtedly a poor performance. The passion was lacking, the creativity, as many of us have highlighted already, was sparse and it was another instance in this fledging season where a defensive error has cost us.
Squad Evaluation by bring_back_Wickham
As so many people are divided over whether we are a play-off challenging club or a mid-table club, I have decided to evaluate our squad so that you guys can disagree with me. So here goes.
