Bandari FC head coach Andre Casa Mbungo was quick to thank God after suffering his heaviest defeat at the helm of the Dockers.
Coming on the backstroke of a 1-1 draw against debutants Bidco United at Mbaraki, Mbungo and his charges, were out to better their fortunes but that came crumbling down barely 15 minutes into their match at KCB, and eventually losing 3-0 at Utalii Grounds in Nairobi.
Despite an afternoon in futility, the Rwandese tactician was quick to acknowledge his creator for the result.
“First, let me thank God for this result, at least no one picked up an injury, we are all good. We played against a good team, that exploited our lack of match fitness,” the former AFC Leopards head coach said in a post-match interview.
Mbungo who has been christened ‘Pep’ for his pass-and-move style of play similar to that of his Manchester City Spanish counterpart Pep Guardiola did not shy away from crediting KCB for their dominant performance promising an improved Bandari going forward.
“We committed grave mistakes that we should never commit; positioning, ball control, passing and crossing were all pathetic today. We will keep working hard and we will gradually improve. We will be okay in two to three weeks,” said the former Rayon Sports tactician.
Sunday’s loss courtesy of goals by Vincent Simiyu, Harun Thomas and Derrick Otanga is Casa Mbungo’s heaviest defeat since his appointment as Bandari head coach in January.
The Dockers’ fourth loss of the campaign sees them stay 5th on 27 points from 17 matches.
