Guinea president Colonel Mamadi Doumbuya blasts team after AFCON exit

Guinea president Colonel Mamadi Doumbuya has lambasted the National Elephants after exit from Africa Cup of Nations.

The National Elephants of Guinea were sent packing by the Scorpions of Gambia in Cameroon on Monday.

Musa Barrow scored the only goal that dumped Guinea out in the round of 16.

And president Colonel Mamadi Doumbuya has reportedly blasted their performance.

“You have not showed pride or hunger to win, says Mamadi Doumbuya”

“A disgraceful performance, you have let down 13 million Guineans.”

Guinea were heavy favourites going ito this clash but without their star player Naby Keita they were not the same team.

And debutants Gambia overpowered them on the day.

Recall, that the president reportedly warned his team before going for the tournament that they must win or refund his money back.

“The cup or you reimburse the money that’s been invested in you,” the Guinean President was quoted as telling the players.
