Guy Madjo was a model pro, says Plymouth Argyle manager
STRIKER Guy Madjo was a 'model pro' despite dropping out of first team contention at Plymouth Argyle towards the end of his three-month loan spell from Aldershot Town, manager Carl Fletcher has stated.
Fletcher was vague, though, when asked why Madjo had not featured more for the Pilgrims in recent weeks, despite their continuing difficulties to score goals.
"It's just the way it is," Fletcher told Herald Sport. "It's what we choose for what we think can win us the game.
"He has been a model pro and he has trained hard every day."

Madjo made nine starts and five substitute appearances for Argyle after signing in early September and scored three goals.
He netted twice from the penalty spot in the 3-1 win against Rochdale at Home Park on October 20.
Madjo had his last run-out for the Pilgrims as a late substitute in the 1-0 home defeat by Chesterfield on November 24.
The 28-year-old did not even make the bench for the following three matches and his loan ended after the 1-1 draw away to Exeter City on Saturday.
Madjo watched the Devon derby with the travelling Green Army in the away end at St James' Park.
Fletcher said: "We brought him in when we were down to bare bones with no strikers.
"He's a real good character and a real nice guy. All the lads liked him and we wish him all the best for the future.
"Obviously, he would have liked to have played a few more games but that's just the way it goes in football sometimes."
Fletcher likes to have strikers in his team who are capable of defending at set pieces and that was not one of Madjo's strengths.
That might have been one of the things that counted against Madjo during his time at Argyle.
Asked whether there was any chance of Madjo returning to the club in the January transfer window, Fletcher replied: "I'm not too sure yet.
"We have got to sit down and see where finances are for January, and see what we have got, and what we haven't got, and then we will go from there."
An experienced Argyle side, containing nine professionals, narrowly beat Ivybridge Town 1-0 at Home Park last night in the Devon St Luke's Cup second round.
Isaac Vassell scored the only goal of the game in the 11th minute after he was set up by captain Warren Feeney.
Second-year apprentice Tyler Harvey twice hit the post in the second half for Argyle, who will now be away to Witheridge in the quarter-finals.
Argyle: Chenoweth, Watson, Williams, Lowry, Bradley, Richards, Lecointe, Sims, Vassell, Harvey, Feeney (Allen 66).
CARL FLETCHER, plus players Warren Feeney and Andres Gurrieri, will each read a lesson at Argyle's annual open-air carol concert at Home Park tomorrow.
Pilgrims' defender Maxime Blanchard will play the guitar and a WAGS' Choir has also been lined up.
The gates at the Devonport End open at 6pm and the concert starts at 7pm. Admission is free, as are the mince pies, and there will be a visit from Father Christmas as well.
