Wikki Tourists: Kabiru Dogo wasn’t the problem; Player exculpates Former Coach


Wikki Tourist defender Elijah Ogene has revealed that the resignation of head Coach Kabiru Dogo wasn’t the solution of the team’s poor form.

Ogene insists Dogo wasn’t the problem, rather it was a mental weakness and soon as the Players changed their mentality – against Rangers – they were able to get the win.

“For me the coach that resigned is not the problem because he did all his best, even we the players, we did our best. But the result did not come,” the Player explained.

“Before the game against Rangers, I told my teammates in the dressing room that the manager is not the problem, and that we had to change our mentality. No matter how we play, if we don’t find a winning mentality, we are not going to get it right.

“We had to be determined and view the game as a must win game for us. The game against Rangers was beyond good players we just had to change our mentality and win the match.

“It’s still the same players and philosophy because even the new coach was the assistant to Dogo, so it was still the same philosophy. But the only thing that changed against Rangers was the mentality because we had to win and we started the fight from the blast of the whistle till we got the victory.”

Wikki Tourist will be hoping for victory away to Abia warriors when they knock horns – Sunday – as three points will see them move up to mid-table.
