'No panic', Frank Ouna speaks out as Mathare United continue to fight relegation

Mathare United coach Frank Ouna says there is no panic at all despite the club fighting relegation. 

Mathare suffered their 12th defeat this season this week following a 1-0 loss to defending champions Gor Mahia. Their loss to K'Ogalo left them fighting for relegation at the bottom of the table with eight points after 18 matches. 

However, Ouna whose side hasn't picked any win in the last four matches insists his charges have what it takes to weather the tied. 

"I am not worried," he told the club's official Facebook page.

"Probably I will get worried when we are in the same place and have three or four matches left to play. I am the driver and if I panic then it means the whole bus or ship will sink. Keine Angst Keine Panik, we will get ourselves out of this situation."

Ouna also touched on what he feels is remaining for his team to start putting points on the board.

"When a team is not winning it affects the players’ psyche and that can be seen when a player gets presented with a golden chance to score and can’t manage to do so. This is something that we continue to work on as a team. Getting the players ready mentally is key to every battle."

"How we respond when presented with those chances in games is what will define us in the coming matches. We have slightly managed to improve defensively and teams are finding it hard to blow us out. We just now have to find this balance on the opposite end," he said.

The Slum Boys will be up against league leaders KCB tomorrow starting from 1:00 PM EAT.
