Jalal Ready To Shine?

Last updated : 28 November 2009 By Bournemouth Co-Ordinator

Neil Moss, an previous Exiles Player Of The Season, believes that current Cherries keeper, Shwan Jalal, is ready to shine and can perform at a much higher level than League Two.

Moss is quoted in the Bournemouth Evening Echo as saying: "I think there’s been no goalkeeper I’ve seen who is better than Jal. I look at League One and even the Championship and I strongly believe Jal would more than hold his own. He’s experienced, he’s a great age for a goalkeeper and he’s still young enough to learn and improve. His kicking is outstanding and he’s turning into a very confident goalkeeper. You can be the best technically but if you are not confident then you can look like the worst goalkeeper in the world. He’s put the hours in and you can see the confidence oozing out of him. The back four wouldn’t be able to play well if they hadn’t got a good, confident goalkeeper behind them. If you spoke to the defenders, I’m sure they’d be delighted with the way their goalkeeper has been playing behind them".
