Gambia Didn't Win A Match In Five Years Before I Came - Coach Tom Saintfiet Spits fire

In response to the some angry Gambian journalists and fans who are calling for the removal of the national team coach, Tom Saintfiet, the coach has hit back at his critics. Tom Saintfiet said” You are trying to embarrass me in front of the international media. You the Gambian Journalist are trying to influence the mindset of the fans, the players, and other people. "When we win you are happy but when we lose, I am the worst coach in the history of the Gambia. When I defend we win matches you celebrate but when I attack and we concede a lot of goals I am the worst coach. When we defend and win against Tunisia, Morocco , and other teams you people are happy. "Let me tell you this before I came to the Gambia. The Gambia didn’t win a match for 5 years” "Don't forget the Gambian League is not a professional league. Some players are paid less than 50 dollars a month. We never qualify for the AFCON before I came and now we are here. " You people think that we can beat everyone, you think we cannot be beaten” Recall that the former Togo and Zimbabwe coach was appointed in July 2018 as coach of the national team and has helped Gambia qualified for the African Cup of Nations for 2023. They qualified with second on group D with 10points behind group leaders, Mali (15points). Although they have lost two of their opening group C matches to Senegal and Guinea and are placed bottom of the log, Saintfiet is hopeful of progressing to the next round if they can beat Cameroon on Tuesday.
