Gor, Bandari bundled out of continental cup

Published

on

KPL champions Gor Mahia crashed out of the Confederation cup playoffs after going down 2-1 to host DC Motema Pembe in DR Congo.
Wellington Ochieng put K’Ogalo in front 10 minutes into play before Vinny Bongonga put things level during the first half’s additional time.
Junior Kone scored the second and winning goal for the host on the 66th minute, Gor went down on 3-2 aggregate after 1-1 draw at Kasarani Stadium a week ago.
And back in the country, Bandari FC lost 1-0 against visiting Guinea’s Horoya Athletic Club during the return leg of a CAF Confederation Cup playoffs tie staged on Sunday at the Kasarani stadium.
Mandela Ocansey scored the solitary goal for the visitors on the 65th minute to seal Bandari’s fate, in a tight match that saw the dockers struggle at home.
The lose meant Bandari suffered a 5-2 aggregate defeat to Horoya after last weekend’s 4-2 loss in Conakry.
Bandari coach Ramadhan Balala decried lack of experience in the continental outing as their main undoing and promised to bounce back next year.
Following the defeats, both teams will return to KPL and FKF Shield matches.

Barcelona have appointed Ronald Koeman as their next coach, the club said in a statement on Wednesday, as the Catalans look to rebuild after their 8-2 thrashing by Bayern Munich in the Champions League last week.

Koeman, who has left his role as manager of the Netherlands, has signed a two-year-deal with Barcelona, who sacked Quique Setien on Monday after he presided over the club’s worst defeat ever in European competition.

Koeman, who will be officially presented at the Camp Nou stadium later on Wednesday, is dearly loved at Barca for his role in Johan Cruyff’s hugely successful side known as the ‘Dream Team’ and for scoring the goal that delivered the club’s first ever European Cup in 1992.

The defender later became the club’s assistant coach before embarking on a career as a head coach, managing Dutch sides Ajax Amsterdam, PSV Eindhoven and Feyenoord plus Premier League sides Southampton and Everton and La Liga’s Valencia.

“Barcelona and Ronald Koeman have come to an agreement for him to be the team’s coach until 30 June 2022,” said Barca’s statement.

“A club legend and Barca’s hero at Wembley who gave fans their first European Cup, Koeman is coming back to the Camp Nou. But this time he will be in the dugout to lead the team.”
