Nandwa disappointed after Stars loss



Harambee Stars coach James Nandwa was lost for words after his charges failed to live up to expectations drawing 0-0 at home to Burundi Swallows in the return leg of a CHAN qualifier.

Nandwa rued missed chances alluding to the fact that the absence of key players like Rama Salim and Humphrey Mieno who moved to Tanzania affected the team’s game plan.

He further urged the federation to look into starting sustainable youth programmes to help nurture players.

"It is very unfortunate that we were knocked out by Burundi despite playing at home. The players took a long time to settle down with Burundi spoiling our game plan."

"I will wait to hear from the federation on the plans they have but I think it’s also prudent to come up with tangible youth structures to help nurture future talent," Nandwa told supersport.com.

Stars lost 1-0 a fortnight ago in Bujumbura and needed to win by two clear goals but the Swallows proved to be hard nut to crack in Nairobi.
