If Declan McManus was a musician, he’d probably spend the better part of each year on tours. The 27-year-old is the archetypical journeyman, who literally derives pleasure on the road.
Before landing in Park Hall, McManus changed clubs 10 times in just a little over a decade. Starting at Aberdeen, the 27-year-old spends an average of one year at all his clubs just as the stats on several best Australia online casino sites reported.
He was expected to continue this trend at TNS. However, the Scotsman is enjoying life in the Cymru Premier League and could ultimately remain there.
Although, McManus’ dream was a move to Europe. However, he welcomed the prospect of playing in a new league, winning titles and qualifying for Europe. He even set a personal target of eclipsing his best return at Falkirk.
“European football was the big lure for me. I’ve always wanted to experience Europe and I like the idea of having a fresh challenge in my career as well,” he said.
“I want to win trophies and compete for league titles as that’s what you look back on in your career. TNS give me the platform to do that and testing myself in a new league has been an enjoyable experience so far.
“My ambition with the club is to qualify for the Europa League or Europa Conference League group stages. I want to win domestic trophies and beat my best ever goalscoring season, that I had at Falkirk.
“We played against Victoria Plzen this season and we took them all the way to penalties which shows that we can compete in Europe”.
McManus began like a man on fire with five goals in Europe including a hat-trick against Viktoria Plzen. The Saints advanced to that stage after impressive victories over Glentoran and FK Kauno Zalgiris, making users of real money online pokies glad. The Scottish forward has already broken his personal best goal tally.
With 21 strikes, McManus is the division’s top scorer. His closest rival, Newton’s Aaron Williams is eight goals away. The Scotsman has added the league winners medal to his collection. Should this good fortune continue, McManus would likely remain at TNS.
