Both coaches made this remark on Wednesday at the Independence Stadium following their goalless draw encounters.
Lamin Jabang stated that the Super Nawetan should be taken back to parks to attract more fans, spectators and scouts, adding that even the turnout of fans during their game against Brufut showed that the competition should be taken back to its initial grounds.
He noted that even the suspension of the competition affected them during their game against Brufut.
Jabang said his side was unfortunate in collecting a point against Brufut, looking at the number of chances they created during the encounter.
Their next game against Sukuta is a must win for them, he said, adding that they would prepare fully for it to collect the maximum points.
“In football, you cannot satisfy everyone,” he noted, saying he had to choose and play the right players he believed could give him the desired results.
Malick Gassama said they have “minimal chances” of making it to the next stage of the competition, adding that their destiny is in their own hands.“We cannot rely on someone for qualification,” he said.
He stated that his team lacks maturity as most of his players were having their first-year experience in taking part in the Super Nawetan.
The Super Nawetan should be taken back to the various zonal parks and the security increased, he emphasised.
He described this year’s Super Nawetan organisation as “completely very poor”, adding that it has even affected the performance of zones.
He noted that they have the largest and best fan base but that the idea of moving the Super Nawetan from zonal parks to the Independence Stadium has resulted in the poor turnout.
