John Killa - WAFA Coach

West Africa Football Academy (WAFA), coach John Killa has shirked responsibility for consistent poor away results in the Ghana Premier League.

The Dutchman’s continuously altered side lost 2-0 to Bechem United on Sunday, as they continue to find a remedy to their poor away form at the Red Bull Arena in Ghana’s elite division.

He is of the opinion that player faults have played a major role to WAFA SC’s disappointing travels.

Speaking after the game, the coach who saw his 10-man team, lose again in an away game feels they were less expectant of a red card so early in the game and that changed the game.

“Our preparations before the game was not what we expected and the red card as well, but when the red card came, it was a mistake.

“We received a penalty in addition to the red card and at that moment, I had to reorganize the team. I think the boys did well especially in the last 10 minutes of the first half, where we created some free kicks, but the game was changing and you have to organize your team very well if you are playing with 10 men,” John Killa said in a post-match interview.

“We were waiting for the equalizer in the second half, because we knew that we had some chances between the second half only to see a poor marking from a free kick by our right defender giving us away,” Killa added.
