Nimba County football coach, Muta Fofana, has said that he lost the County Meet soccer finals to Grand Bassa because his boys underestimated their opponents.
He was speaking for the first time since the team lost the finals 1-2 to the champions, Grand Bassa in the 2013-2014 National County Meet.
He said, “I think we were so overconfident for victory so when our boys made up their minds it was too late to recover.”
“I always told my boys not to underestimate any team,” he said, “but they failed to adhere to my advice.”
Under Coach Fofana, Nimba became the only undefeatable team and didn’t draw any of her games in the last County Meet. The team only suffered its 1-2 defeat to Grand Bassa in the finals.
He has meanwhile called on the leadership of Nimba County to give all necessary support for preparation of the next County Meet in early August, this year. He commended his players for reaching the finals, since only the best teams reach the finals.
Nimba County reached the soccer finals of the County Meet, and only lost to eventual champions, Grand Bassa County in match that brought the best in Liberian County Meet football.
