Wallidan FC head coach Foday Bah has said his side showed “real character” against Bakau United in their opening game of the domestic league despite losing by a goal to nil.
“We put up a great performance and also created a number of chances but could not score,” he stated, adding: “Bakau United only created a single chance after scoring.”
“We played very well today,” he went on, saying they would go back to prepare for other encounters.
“In any championship we take part in, we try to win the title,” he remarked, saying they will fight to win the league this season.
“We are going for the 3 points against Brikama United,” he responded when asked how he would approach the game against the West Coast Region giants in their own backyard.
“Brikama United are a formidable side and the game will be well-contested,” he pointed out.
Asked about the penalty his side conceded and the sending-off of his player (Bakary Njie), he said: “I do not want to talk about referees, it’s his decision.”
Amadou Demba, a member of Bakau United technical bench, said his side deserved the win over Wallidan FC, adding: “The ball possession does not matter but the 3 points.”
He stated that his team is made up of young players this season blended with some senior players to build a good and formidable team.
Their winning means they are going for the title this season, he remarked, saying they are nursing some injuries.
They would try to rectify their mistakes to do better next time, he said, adding that their next game will be better.
“Our aim is to top the league table at the end of the first round,” he declared.
“In any game there must be mistakes and that is why Wallidan FC had a red card,” he noted, but when asked about his take on the sending-off, he said: “I cannot comment for the referee.”
