Pablo the FA Cup Hero
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.

Has Daley ever said anything nice about anyone on TWTD?

So many on here satisfied with mediocrity, it's laughable.

TractorCam - Cheers for putting me straight.

I belittle him because, despite having all the talent in the world and playing in the Spanish U21s with that superb side that matured to win the World Cup, he was lazy lazy lazy. For a man of his talent 1 in 4 goals in the second level of British football was, quite frankly, embarrassing. And whilst I agree that toward the end of his second stint chances were hard to come by his first stint was under Royle - loads of attacking. Even Shefki "turning circle of a chieftain tank" Kuki and Darren "my wife would have scored that" bent managed 18 league goals each in that era.

I remember a reserve game against Naaaaarrrrwcih when he strolled round disinterested - yet again not trying. He should have been substituted, stripped of the blue shirt, told to leave immediately and not come back. Inexcusable......

MattinLondon - yeah, once in 2008, but i think someone hacked his account.

A couple of people gave my previous comment a minus... Normally I'd not be bothered, but All I said was he has scored about 10% of his career goals in Asia. That is just a fact sad people. If anything I am being kind.
You can argue he was a continental style number 10 who should not have scored that many goals but set them up as the linking play maker and that's a fair enough opinion to put forward, but to just mark down a statement of fact tells me that the people who did that have the emotional and intellectual capacity of a 2 year old.

Nearly £14.000 for an afternoon's work? I sweat for half a year for that. Ole, ole, ole, ole I don't expect Pablo cares whether the whiners on here really liked him or not. Bet Hong Kong's got nicer places to eat too.
