I had noted earlier that Kongbo could have started for any other team in the league. He excelled in the Bomber’s rotational system. Next man up. Good luck to Jonathan! For the Bombers, one of the casualties of success.


Really underrated player, sometimes it was easy to confuse him with WJ or JJ.

Still a ton of growth for him, hope he makes it, but kinda hope he comes back!
