Having returned from his vacation in the Gambia to prepare for the new season, LISCR head coach Tapha Manneh has told his players that he does not have space for indiscipline players ahead of the new season.
Coach Manneh said no level of skills and brilliance from a player that has no discipline will guarantee his stay in his team. He signaled the warning during the team’s first gathering since they won the ‘double titles.’
According to the Gambian, it is based on the output of the players that will determine their stay with the club; therefore it should be teamwork between him and his players for their success.
“You can play full 90 minutes very well, but without discipline, you cannot be a part of my team,” Coach Manneh said.
“I don’t joke when it comes to my profession. You signed a contract and I signed mine. It is based on your output that will extend or terminate your contract. So, as a player, before you try to get mine terminated, no matter how many seasons you have signed with the club, I will recommend yours to be terminated,” he said.
In another development, Coach Manneh has revealed that his tough opponent during last season’s campaign was Keitrace FC. He made the disclosure when he appeared as a guest on the Prime FM weekend sports program ‘Prime Sports Track’.
He said out of the top clubs, including FC Fassell, Monrovia Club Breweries, and Barrack Young Controller, his team found it difficult to overcome the Gardnerville outfit. LISCR’s single defeat in last season was against Keitrace (3-2) in the FA Cup semifinal’s first leg unbeaten record on July 28 at the Antoinette Tubman Stadium.
LISCR who will be representing Liberia at next year’s CAF Champions League, have so far signed eight new players, including four Gambians. The team will have a huge task to perform in the upcoming season to defend their double titles and properly represent Liberia at the continental club competition.
