“Being obstructed by national team duties is not the problem, but it becomes a problem when the subordinates are not catching up with him, but we are definitely enjoying his stay. It’s not really good for the team but we have capable technical crew who are learning from him”, the Chairman stated.
The Chairman went further to assure the fans that the defeat to Plateau United should not be seen as a setback, as the team will go back to winning ways as early as the next match.
