Mazembe: No Excuse, Nothing!
Posted: 17 March 2021
Mamelodi Sundowns FC won 1-0 at home against African giants TP Mazembe yesterday to qaulify for the knockout stages of the African Champions League and left their opponents on the brink of elimination.
However, when The Beautiful Game asked the TP Mazembe Head Coach Mihayo Kazembe if the playing conditions (time of kickoff and the grass pitch, as they play on an astroturf in Lubumbashi) worked against them, he said;
“No, it’s not the reason. There is no excuses, we lost the game. So playing the game at 18:H00, it’s not an excuse, we just lost the game against a better team.
When The Beautiful Game asked the calm Head Coach as to what should they do to at least qualify for the quarterfinals, he said;
“I think we have to work hard enough to win the (remaining) two games to get through to the next round of the competition,” concluded Kazembe.
The 44-year-old has his work cut out if the Les Corbeaux harbour any hopes of progressing to the next round as they currently have a mere two points from four games.
