“I’m not surprised that they crashed out regardless of me wishing them the best while the journey lasted.

“I think it was inevitable for them to be kicked out of the competition because some had never had continental experience.

“I still give kudos to the coaching crew for still putting them together and making do with the players available.

“Remember most players left and they also had fund problems, so I think these factors affected the team but all in all I think they their best and should keep their head up as they didn’t disappoint”, the Former Lobi Stars midfielder concluded.
