YOUNG Africans Assistant Coach Cedric Kaze hailed the attitude and commitment of his charges for the massive victory as Kagera Sugar trainer Mecky Mexime conceded the loss saying nobody should be blamed.
Yanga were on rampage at Azam Complex in Dar es Salaam on Tuesday evening as they recorded a massive 5-0 victory to cement their top stay at the Premier League table.

Up next, they face their traditional rivals Simba in a derby match at Benjamin Mkapa Stadium in Dar es Salaam on Sunday battling for maximum points to keep climbing up the league ladders.
“We approached the match with commitment that is why we pressed high especially in the first half and in the process we missed several scoring chances.
“The most important thing is the attitude of players because they executed well what they were told to do throughout the game and this is what made them to play with strong determination,” he said.
Concerning the approaching derby encounter, Kaze said they have already analysed their opponents (Simba) and will use the four days prior to the match to fully prepare their team.
“We believe that it is going to be a title decisive match because if we win, we are going to have a better chance of clinching the season’s championship and we want to approach it on that angle,” he said.
He then wished that the players will also be having good attitude and determination to achieve more success insisting to work on small details which could deprive them the massive victory.
On his part, Mexime accepted the defeat while acknowledging their opponents that they deserved to win as they were a better side in during the game.
“I concede the results, they played well than us and they have a good team. There is nothing we can do to change the final score other than congratulating them for the victory,” he said.
