Wednesday, April 18, 2012
Pa Samba Mbenga, the head coach of Young Africans football club has unhappily blamed The Gambia’s football governing body GFA, for what he called as “inefficient on their duties.”
The disappointed coach was speaking to journalists in a post-match interview following their goalless against The Gambia Ports Authority football club on Sunday at the Serrekunda East football ground in week fourteen fixture in the second round of the GFA league one.
“It’s very shameful if you look at the field today, you can’t even see the marks of the field correctly. It’s very complicated for the referees to officiate the game accurately, I wonder what is the role of the organisers?” the angry coach said.
Pa Samba Mbenga, the former Sea View head coach joined Young Africans this season following the departure of Coach Sulayman Corr.
Coach Mbenga and his team are currently occupying fifth position on the table with 17 points together with Gamtel and Steve Biko. Both have games in hand.
Despite the poor management of the field, Mbenga said the performances of his players were good.
Before the commencement of the league the organisers promised that both the security and medical personnel will be available throughout the league; but many games were postponed in the second round of GFA league one and the first round of The Gambia’s second tier football of the GFA due to the absent of securities and field unmarked.
The game ended in a tension between the head coach of GPA Ngiran Ngiran when the captain of the Young Africans Muhammed Jatta exchanged strong words with the head coach Ngiran Ngiran and his technical staff.
This incident follow the clash between Brikama United and Steve Biko fans in the first game of the second round due to the absent of the security at the game which left many injured.
