Coach Wasswa Bbosa has decried the events that led to the match as the key reason as to why his team lost to Al Merreikh in the second leg of the CAF champions league first preliminary stage.

The match was initially scheduled to be played on Friday 17th but the hosts wrote to CAF and pushed it to Sunday 19th.

“We are out of the CAF champions league but I think the boys have done well, they have given their all under the circumstances because there was a lot of disorganization”.

Bbosa said as quoted by www.expressfc.co.ug.

“The game was moved from Friday to Sunday, the officiating was also lacking but on our side this won’t kill our motivation “

He added.

The tactician also urged his players to quickly turn their attention to the upcoming local fixtures and use the continental experience garnered to their best.

” We are going back to concentrate on the Uganda cup and the league, most of our players were playing on the continent for the first time , our fans shouldn’t lose hope for we shall bounce back better”.

The league champions will now have to turn their attention to the Uganda cup semifinals where they will face BUL FC this week on Thursday.

Al Merreikh beat Express Fc 1-0 in Obeid to edge them on away goals rule and ultimately seal their place in the second preliminary round of the competition. They will meet Zambia’s Zanaco FC.
