Young Liberian player Murphy Dorey and other players arrived in Liberia on Wednesday, 5 September for a match against DR Congo which is due on Sunday, 9 September. The 19 years old Liberian plays for Slovan Liberec of Czech Republic.
He made his way to the national team while playing here for Monrovia Club Breweries. Murphy Dorley moved to Lithuania A Lyga in 2016 and won best player two times on the tea.
Midfielder Dorley moved to Czech Republic on Loan in 2018 to Slovan Liberec of the Czech First Division League in the Czech Republic. The talented offensive midfielder joined Liberec from Lithuanian Club FK Trakai, where he delivered outstanding performances since the summer of 2016.
Upon arrival, Dorley was welcomed by his new coach, David Holoubek, who says, “He is a very talented and promising young player who liked us right from the start, both in matches and in training.”
Coach Holoubek says Doley has a first-class first touch and he can give a final pass.“For his age, he is certainly a very interesting player for Slovan. In addition, he still seems to be well and kind, he is a modest boy who wants to keep moving,” the coach adds.
