Kinnah: Things will improve

Mbeya lost 2-0 to Tanzania Mainland Premier League leaders Simba on Sunday at National Stadium in Dar-es-Salaam.

But the former Bullets and Malawi national football team coach downplayed the loss saying his charges were a better team of the day.

“The future of the team is good. Its just a matter of solidifying certain positions,” Kinnah told Tanzania newspaper, The Guardian.

He attributed the loss to bad luck saying the team played well but conceded to two goals in the second half.

“It was bad kuck. We don’t have to blame anybody. We made mistakes and we were punished. We had scoring chances but we didn’t exploit them.

Simba’s coach, a Ugandan, was delighted with the win and hailed supporters for raising the morale of the players.

The loss has left Mbeya on position 10 dropping a step down.

They have 21 points averaging one point per game having 5 wins 10 losses and six draws.

Kinnah lost his first game against Azam after one win and one draw.

Not good coach, I don’t like his sitting quite when the game is against his team. I guess Kinnah doesn’t read the game. Be like Diego Simeon who is on the touchline 90 minutes.
