Why Amavubi lost to Burundi

IT is easy to blame someone or something when things are not going right. In fact, it comes naturally to do so. So I can’t wait to  hear what Amavubi coach Sellas Tetteh has to say about Sunday’s humiliating defeat. After a resounding victory in the first leg were Tetteh fielded only two pros in Baby (Elias Uzamukunda) and Patrick Mafisango, everyone in the wasps’ camp expected an even stronger performance considering the return of Kalisa Mao, Bokota Labama and Olivier Karekezi.

So I can’t wait to  hear what Amavubi coach Sellas Tetteh has to say about Sunday’s humiliating defeat.

After a resounding victory in the first leg were Tetteh fielded only two pros in Baby (Elias Uzamukunda) and Patrick Mafisango, everyone in the wasps’ camp expected an even stronger performance considering the return of Kalisa Mao, Bokota Labama and Olivier Karekezi.

Such was the poise among the fans that a record number beat all odds to travel to Bujumbura to cheer on the team.
Clad in yellow, blue and green, they endured the scorching sun and the unprofessional Burundi police in the packed Prince Louis Rwagasore stadium.

I was seated next to former Amavubi assistant coach Jean Marie Ntagwabira (now at Rayon Sport) and once the team sheet was out, he predicted a rough outing for the wasps.

The 38-year-old could not understand why Tetteh had to leave out Bokota Labama from the starting line-up and to make matters worse - play Peter Kagabo and Jacques Tuyisenge out of position.

The former APR and Atraco coach maintains that Tetteh’s assistants Eric Nshimiyimana and Emmanuel Ruremesha should have talked the Ghanaian out of the gaffe.
