Nkana coach Ian Bakala wants his players to ‘wake up’ following their ’embarrassing’ 1-0 defeat to Forest Rangers on Saturday.
“I knew it was going to be very tough. I knew what was coming.
Since he took over, Bakala has only picked up a point from a possible 6.
“I think even us, the players, have to wake up. It’s an embarrassing [thing] losing a game like this.
Despite the defeat, Bakala is still optimistic that Zambia’s most decorated club will ‘catch up.’
“The games are still on, we are going to catch up, they [players] are learning a new philosophy they just have to adapt but I know it will take time but we have to start fighting for a win.
Bakala also highlighted that mental strength could be affecting the players as it’s not easy to play for a big club like Nkana.
“It is just the mental strength of the players that they have to be strong.
“Nkana is a big club. We have good players but their mentality has to change.
“A lot of players, their mentality is not that strong.
Nkana are bottom of the Super League.
