Pleasant return for Hyka
By Endre Bakken, 10 June 2006, 21:56
Jahmir Hyka has had a great week since he returned to Trondheim and Rosenborg.
(RBK 2 - KIL/Hemne 5-2): The 18-year-old got his player's license from the Norwegian Football Association Thursday last week, and immediately returned to Norway. He made his debut for RBK 2 the day after in the 0-4 loss against Steinkjer.
This week he has played a match every other day: two RBK 3 matches against Vuku and Fram Skatval on Tuesday and Thursday and a RBK 2 match against KIL/Hemne this afternoon.
During these 270 minutes Hyka played very well, got two penalty kicks and, not least, scored four goals!
"It is good to be back. It is important for my future as a footballer to be allowed to continue at Rosenborg. I have already made many friends here, and I feel at home," Jahmir Hyka told rosenborg.info.
Coach for RBK 2 and RBK 3 Kåre Ingebrigtsen is extremely pleased with Hyka being allowed to stay. The old Rosenborg hero predicts a great future for the small, technically gifted midfielder.
"He has extraordinary skills, but he needs to improve his defensive play, understanding of the game and relational skills a little," Ingebrigtsen said.
This afternoon we got proof of this. Hyka, who playeds in an unfamiliar position as left winger, had several nice passes and series of dribbles, but often had to be chased home in defense. In the end of the match he had both a long shot that went just wide and a raid in which he fooled four KIL/Hemne players.
An extremely young RBK 2 team got a nice victory against the bottom team in the division. Hemne created some trouble before half time, when they turned the game around. 16-year-old Jo Sondre Aas impressed with a hat-trick.
"We played a good game. We struggled in the first half, but after the break we were good. We scored many goals, which is important. And most importantly: we won," Hyka said with a smile on his face.
He now travels back to Albania to meet the rest of the U-21 national team. When he returns he will begin his new life as a member of the first team squad. He is looking forward to make his debut on the first team, but is in no hurry.
"I hope to be a regular on RBK 2 this year, and then we will see what happens next year," Jahmir Hyka concluded.
