The Current Burkina Faso football coach, Paul Putt who struggled to qualify the Gambia to the African Cup of Nation for the first time in the country’s football history, have proved Gambia wrong by leading B. Faso to a victory against Ethiopia.
Paul was sacked amidst failure to take Gambia through to AFCON, but now he demonstrates that the failure was not on his side… who knows who to blame, is it the Footballers, the Ministry or administrators, the answer will unveil itself in the near future.
His team registered a one-all draw against the eagles of Nigeria and trashed Ethiopia by 4-0 in their first and second match respectively, earning four points in two games with a game left in the group stage of the AFCON. Meaning only a point will see the Burkinabees in the quarter finals.
His sacking does not make any different in Gambia’s struggle to get to AFCON, as they remain the worst teams in Africa along side Guinea Bissau being the only countries that fail to test the sweet or bitterness of the AFCOPN.
