Williamson slates Harambee Stars defence

15 October 2014, 15:04

Nairobi - Kenya coach Bobby Williamson admits his side were "poor defensively" against Morocco after crashing to a 3-0 defeat on Monday evening.

The Stade de Marrakech encounter looked to be heading towards a stalemate as the scores remained deadlocked at 0-0 with 10 minutes to go, but the Harambee Stars suffered a late implosion to concede three quick goals.

The result meant Williamson has now lost both his games in charge of the Kenyan national team, having gone down 1-0 to Egypt on debut, and the former Gor Mahia tactician was left less than impressed with the team's late collapse against the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations hosts.

"We were poor defensively, especially in second period, and could not maintain our heads even when we went down 1-0. You cannot defend like that in a game of football in this era and expect to get a decent result," Williamson, who led K'Ogalo to the Kenyan Premier League title last year, told Goal.

"We gave away a cheap penalty and that was game over. Then they grabbed a third from a swift counter attack when we were also trying to score on the other end.

"Very difficult result to take home but we are in a learning process and Kenyans should be patient. We are trying out several players and soon we will come up with a winning outfit."
