Tanito described as ‘livewire’


SOLOMON Islands international Tutizama Tanito has been described as ‘livewire’ by the PNG media.

Tanito was given the description following his electrifying pace in the PNG national soccer league.

The lad from Western Province is currently playing for Lae City Dwellers known as Toti FC in the PNG’s top flight soccer league.

Dwellers coach Peter Gunemba told the PNG media that Tanito has been very sharp since joining the club three weeks ago scoring three goals in two matches.

“The livewire from Solomon Islands has been very sharp since his arrival this month.”

Gunemba said he arrived two days before the second game against Buang FC and they did not waste him, thus bringing him into the second half in the game against Buang FC.

According to other reports, Tanito impressed the coach and the crowd with his speed and footworks where he terrorizes the Buang FC defence in his debut for Toti City FC.

He assisted 2 goals and scored himself one.

Last weekend, in the game against Madang FC, the coach opted to use him in the first 11 and he scored his second goal by stepping up to get a penalty.

“Tutizama now commomly called by team mates and local fans as “Totizama” is a silent achiever and well known in PNG since his days with former NSL club Hekari United FC,” a statement from the club said.

Meanwhile, another Solomon Islander and defender Andrew Rarangia is also playing alongside Tanito at the same club.
