We want Sudan not Morocco in quarter finals, says Namibia coach

Namibia coach Ricardo Manetti has said his side will play to avoid Morocco in CHAN 2018 Group B match.

Zambia and Namibia go head to head at King Mohammad V Stadium in Casablanca on Monday at 21h00 in a top of the table clash.

” You want to avoid the host team Morocco and therefore we go for Sudan for us in the quarterfinals,” Manetti told a press briefing Monday morning.

Morocco has already dismantled Guinea and Mauritania in their first two group matches and that hasn’t gone unnoticed.

“Morocco are a free scoring team with very good players and they have the whole country behind them,” he added

“So avoid them now and meet later.

The Brave Warriors’ captain Ronald Ketjijere echoed his coach’s sentiments.

We also want to win and go back to our base in Marrakech and so the game against Zambia will be huge. A cosafa derby and both team will fight for a win. But we both in the next round and that is important as well”, Ricardo Mannetti says.

” Like the coach said, Morocco are at home and they have the support and for now we would like to take on Sudan because it will be level playing ground but against a very strong team”, captain Ronald Ketjijere states.

In order to avoid facing the Atlas Lions, who wi be action against Sudan on Sunday night, Namibia need to beat Zambia.

    If our destine is to meet Morocco, then Zambia will be beaten by Namibia. I am just worried about our defense especially with Kapumbu which is our weakest link. I am appealing to the coach to use Shamujopa then replace Kapumbu with Adrian Chama

  2. Zambian Buffalo says:

    Exactly my point on Kapumbu, we just have to win against Namibia banga puse.

  3. Mukei71 says:

    Don’t. Worry about Namibia who don’t have sharp strikers,it doesn’t mean because they did it I cosafa they will do it this time,I’m sorry Namibia to face Morocco ,they must just prepare for that.

  4. Bsimms says:

    We need to worry about the brave worriors. This under dog bites were the words uttered by their coach prior to the tournament & so far they have bitten Ivory Coast & Uganda leaving them with rabbies.

    This is the same team that wired us in Cosafa not long ago. If we take them lightly baza pusa… Remember we are still playing them sometime this year in Afcon qualifiers if am not mistaken.

    We just need to humble them prior to half time. Thereafter we can think of Sudan as Namibia goes on to handle Morocco.
