Against AS Fortuna in the 21st Guinnessico of the season, Francis Koloko and his team pulled out all the stops to win 3-1 on Sunday 4 June. It was a performance that the coach attributes to the late introduction of the new system with just one match to go in the league: “It took us a while to get our style of play right, given that 70% of our squad had to be reshuffled. It’s a shame that it’s only at the end that the mayonnaise can take hold. We’re happy with the result,” says Francis Koloko.
Even though Éclair won by 2 points from their opponents, Francis Koloko admits that the match was not easy: “We watched AS Fortuna, who caused us a lot of problems in the first leg. They remained faithful to their system of play, which we observed and studied in order to find a way through and get our 3 points.
Éclair, who at the end of the day now have 47 points, have secured their place as runners-up in the Championship. Francis Koloko, head of coaching for the Sa’a princesses, is delighted to be in second place: “I’m filled with a sense of joy and satisfaction. We are in the process of achieving our objective set by the administration: to do better than last season, when we finished 3rd. Today, we finished second. It’s extraordinary,” he enthuses.
