Azam Tigers blame break for loss


Azam Tigers Coach, Patrick Kulemeka, has attributed his side’s 2-0 loss to Nyasa Big Bullets at Chilomoni Stadium on Saturday, to the two-week break leading to the TNM Super League’s final first-round game.

Tigers waited for two weeks before playing Bullets as they were taking part in Carlsberg Cup games.

The two weeks of inactivity affected Tigers, according to Kulemeka.


“The boys have been training for two weeks without a game whereas our counterparts were active in the cup games,” he said.

Kulemeka also blamed poor coordination between his goalkeeper and defenders for the loss.

“We just gave away the goals to Bullets, but we will work it out so that we can bounce back in the second-round. Otherwise, we have learnt some things that we need to work on so that we can maintain the top-eight finish like last year,” he added.


In the game, Muhammad Sulumba scored both goals for Bullets.

Tigers played without their key defender, Peter Cholopi who is with the national team in Morocco.

In his absence, Harvey Machira played well. Goalkeeper William Thole also saved his side from conceding more goals.

Tigers have finished the first-round on position 11 with 18 points.
