“It is very embarrassing. We came up with a plan but nothing worked today for us. Congratulation to Medeama SC,” he told StarTimes after the game.
“They played very well. They were clinical. We gave them too much time and space on the ball and in football if you do that, you will be punished.”
He also admitted that their chances of winning the Ghana Premier League is over after the shocking defeat.
“Our chances of winning the Ghana Premier League are over,” he said.
