“We are all sceptics or pessimists in one way or another when things don’t go our way! But I do feel that in the team sports the ‘collective’ is the most important component. We might have lost but Ernest and his coaching did well.” David Obua tweeted.

“Absolutely. But look at the bigger picture. I think decisions should be made in my opinion to control the situation! With this situation we look at the stability, continuity, The project had a foundation, Now it’s going to be broken.”

“On paper, it was the strongest squad, we must note that! But on the field, it was quite different.” He noted.
