When asked what factors played the biggest part in his success Sreng said:
"I think it is because of the hard work that I've been trying to do. Also because of the organizations I have been living in with the CCH organization and the organization who I have training with HFCA, especially the Svay Rieng FC, Boeung Ket FC, and now Kirivong Sok Sen Chey FC"
"I would like to take this opportunity to say thanks to all my supporters who have been assisting me to allow me to make my dreams of becoming a professional footballer a reality.Thank you!"
