Golden Boot Winner Quioh
Abel Quioh, alias 'King Yellow' with his golden boot won as Indonesian
Utama Divisi top Scorer (14 goals)
By Wleh Bedell
Former Invincible Eleven (IE) striker Abel Quioh, alias
‘King Yellow’, has won the golden boot in the Indonesian
Utama Divisi, the Indonesian First Division. The quick
forward who plies his trade with Persiman netted eleven
goals to emerge as the top scorer at the end of the season
and was therefore presented with the golden boot. The
never-stop-running hit-man also scored six goals in the
Knock-Out competition making it a total of seventeen goals
for the entire season.
The player’s goals also played a key role in making his team
qualified for the parallel top flight league known as the
Indonesian Super League. Quioh has as teammate fellow
countryman Alex Robinson who also had a stint with IE and is
as well endowed with a cultured left foot.
‘King Yellow’ has been plying his trade in that part of the
world for more than three seasons for various clubs where he
has made scoring goals something of regularity. The nimble
footed forward who is deadly from wide areas and not like a
sitting striker whose back will be turned to goal, Quioh is
the Liberian version of the yellow skin Nigerian and West
Brom forward Peter Osasi Obdenwingie who is also very lethal
from wide areas.
The former IE forward Abel had stints with Ghanaian side
Roza where he also made scoring goals his habit. His turbo
booted pace and precision finish makes him a potent front
man who on a d ay can cause havoc to any defense.
