Jamal Mohammed was rewarded with man of the match performance in the 2-2 draw against Malawi in a world Cup qualifying match in Blantyre on Wednesday.

Prior to the second leg match between Kenya and Nigeria in Nairobi, the midfielder commonly known as 'Malo Malo' was reported to be partying and smoking shisha while the team was in camp.

The Oman based side Al Nasr player said he has never been involved in indiscipline cases as reported in a section of the media.

“I give my all when in the pitch contrary to what I am reading in a section of the media. I should be judged on what I do in the pitch and I am not the shisha player. I want to humbly thank the coach for having faith in me especially when many could have opted to drop me.” He noted.

"In Malawi we played well as a team and dominated the match while creating scoring chances. I can confidently say we were the better side.” said the player.

On team commitment Jamal said he has been in the fore front in leading the teams in prayers while very keen on taking other player’s point of view contrary to what many believe.

“Jamal is a humble player, it is quite sad when I see reports of my supposed indiscipline cases in the team. Such kind of negative news travels wide not only in Kenya. However I have come to learn that not everyone is happy with what I do therefore it’s good to learn to stay with all kinds of people.”

Jamal started his career at Premiership side Mathare United where he featured between 2003-2006. He then joined Liberty Professionals in 2006 where he stayed for one year before signing for Hapoel Nazareth, He has also played for Swedish side Enkopings in 2007 to 2009.
