Coach Of Liberia Lament Absence Of Three Key Players, Warns Super Eagles About New Players
Peter Butler the coach of the senior national team of Liberia says his team will be without three key players in today’s 2022 World Cup qualifiers game against Nigeria.
The coach who said he is hopeful of getting a result despite their absence said he has new players who will step in to their shoes but admitted that playing against a team like Nigeria means little or no margin to try new things.
Most prominent among the missing players is first choice goalkeeper Jerome Ashley but the coach is banking on the players available to him to get the job done.
“Sometimes in life you can’t control certain things. I can only control matters on the pitch . We will see what will happen as at the time goes on. We will see what will happen in the next 24 hours”
“We don’t have Jerome, Ashley and David we need to improvise. This is Nigeria and you can’t change certain things”, he said.
On the impact of new players Salmon and Mohammed Kamara, the coach said “ They have always impressed me because I have always monitored them . They bring enthusiasm, quality and competitiveness to the group. They use to train with technical players. They will compliment the group we selected. I’m delighted to have them on board”.
