Muluya takes blame

“I must take the blame for the defeat, my decision to make substitutions in the closing stages did not work, of course, it is not a bad idea to make subs but as a coach, I should have prepared my players beyond penalties, I got it wrong tactically, especially in the second half,” said Muluya.

“I did not expect KCB to counter me tactically (after the changes) but sometimes it is football, and it is my blame, I should have done better, don’t blame anyone, don’t blame Kariobangi Sharks, it is my blame as the coach.”

“We defended well and used our counter-attacks to perfection, our game plan worked and now we are ready to play anyone in the final, we don’t care who we play, we have worked for these and are ready to play and represent the country.”
