Sean Kane made his Ceres debut in his very first match against Shan United in the AFC Champions League Playoff. The defender came on for Junior Munoz in the second half and showed a decent performance for the busmen in the win.
The current national player was delighted on the chance of playing for the PFL Champions despite only having a few training sessions in his belt.
“It felt great making my first appearance for the club, especially on this kind of competition,” said Kane who came on for Junior Munoz in the second half. ” I’ve been working really hard up to this point and it was a good reward to get on the pitch.” he added.
Kane was asked to play centerback last year in JPV after injuries ravaged the teams’ backline. It was a fortuitous move for the former defensive midfielder which eventually earned him a call-up to the national team.
“I think I can add a lot to this team in terms of versatility,” said the defender who played as a wingback in the previous match.
“I played a right back with before with Kaya FC but I think it fits my style of play more to play either as a centerback and a right back. It gives me a bigger view of the field and its easier to pick out passes,” said the Manila-born Kane.
Though he already earned a cap from the national team, the Sweden-raised footballer knows he has a lot of work to do especially in earning his spot in the club that regularly features in continental competition.
“Its gonna be a new challenge for me, I just hope I have a strong pre-season and find my way to the starting eleven as early as possible,” he added.
Sean Kane will have his chance as he and the rest of Ceres-Negros will face Brisbane Roar in Australia on January the 23rd at the QSAC Stadium in Queensland.
