Gamondi credits players’ work rate

TANZANIA: YOUNG Africans Coach, Miguel Gamondi has praised his players for their impressive 3-0 win over Singida Fountain Gate at CCM Kirumba Stadium in Mwanza.

He acknowledged that the victory was hard-fought and commended his players for their work rate and efforts under challenging circumstances.

“I congratulate my players for their hard work done during the match. There were some challenges at the pitch, it was waterlogged. It did not support the smooth flow of the ball but the most important thing is three points.

“It was a difficult game unfolding at a difficult venue, we fought well and succeeded in getting enough goals, which I think we fully deserved,” Gamondi said.

Following the results Yanga have increased their lead gap at the top of the NBC Mainland Premier League table to five points over Azam.
