Debbah Blasts Technicians’ Exclusion

Liberia’s ex-celebrated football star, James Salinsa Debbah has frowned on the program committee of the official celebration of trophies in Buchanan for not recognizing, ‘technicians’ during the program last Saturday.

Salinsa, as he is affectionately called, said the exclusion of the coaches, Mr. Garmondeh Karnga, Cllr. Theophilus Gould and others, (including him), who contributed ‘tactically’ to the success of the teams in the program was erroneous.
