AFC Leopards head coach Patrick Aussems has blasted his players for what he has termed as a poor show in their 0-0 draw against rookies Vihiga Bullets in the Football Kenya Federation (FKF) Premier League at the Nyayo National Stadium on Sunday afternoon.
Despite picking an important point from the fixture, Aussems says his players deserved a beating from the visitors after serving the fans a drab show.
“If there is a team that should have deserved all the three points then it is definitely not us but Vihiga. You know we don’t deserve more than one point because we were very poor and we have to forget about this game as soon as possible,” said the tactician.
The former Simba SC head coach watched the game from the stands having been sent off in their 3-1 win over Posta Rangers for vehemently opposing the referee’s decision in the first half which included adding a number of minutes in the first half stoppage time during which the mailmen equalized.
His assistant Tom Juma was in the dugout for the game and despite not being at the service of his players the Belgian was not pleased with the showing.
“We have even lost some games before this one and I have been congratulating the boys for a good performance which is contrary to what I have seen. There was no pressing, no nothing and we had a very poor performance today,” Aussems fumed.
Vihiga Bullets, for the first time in the top flight, managed a point away, and head coach Juma Abdallah was all praises for his lads who he believes are on their way to attaining Premier League safety.
AFC Leopards stay 11th on the FKF Premier League log with 25 points from 19 games as Vihiga Bullets stay bottom of the 18-team log with a paltry 10 points after playing 18 times.
