My players refused to train ahead of Bechem United game - Legon Cities boss Maxwell Konadu

Published on: 22 May 2023

Legon Cities head coach, Maxwell Konadu has disclosed that his players refused to train adequately following their defeat to Bechem United on Saturday.

The Royals were hosted at the Nana Fosu Gyeabour Park in the matchday 31 games by the Hunters.

Emmanuel Avornyo's 36th-minute strike was enough as the home side recorded the all-important win.

Konadu believes the outcome of the match could have been different if his players had availed themselves for training.

“For me, in the first 30 minutes, we were in the game and could have taken the lead but we couldn’t utilize the chances that came our way. But I will say for one thing, we just couldn’t train the whole week," he told StarTimes.

"Our boys trained only once in the whole week for this game so it reflected on the game. Our current level is not where we are supposed to be.”

Quizzed on why they couldn't train, Konadu said: “It’s up to them. That’s another thing to talk about but if we had trained well in the whole week, we would have picked this point. I believe that."

Legon Cities now sit 11th on the pile with 40 points and will host Hearts of Oak in the matchday 32 games.
