Michel blames fatigue for loss



Harambee Stars coach Henri Michel attributed fitness levels as the main reason for their defeat against Tanzania in a friendly match staged on Wednesday.

Michel who watched on the touchline as his team went down 1-0 added tat they will work on their mistakes.

“The reason we lost could be due to fatigue. The players had just wrapped up the season while the foreign-based players had flown and the time they arrived and played they were drained," he told supersport.com.

“We know the mistakes that we did against Tanzania and we are working on correcting them before we are involved in our next match.”

He also aired his views on the absence of Celtic defensive midfielder Victor Wanyama and Ullensaker/Kisa goalkeeper Arnold Origi.

“I can’t say it’s because of the duo’s absence that we didn’t win, they can be replaced by quality players when unavailable.”

He added that he was yet to hear from the federation in regards to Cecafa Tusker Cup.

“The federation will respond to that because I don’t have a team list with me.”

Kenya has been grouped alongside Uganda, Ethiopia and South Sudan in the upcoming regional competition that kicks off 24th November to 8th December in Kampala.
