Speaking in a post-match interview, the former Premier League manager apologised to Ghanaians, adding that the entire team is disappointed with the results.
“We are incredibly disappointed with the result. We came into the game with a game plan. We changed the system a bit so we can start on the front foot,” the 64-year-old said.
“We are hugely disappointed with the result. It’s a defeat we are hugely disappointed in,” he added.
Jamiro Monteiro and Garry Rodrigues scored in each half of the game as Alexander Djiku scored a consolation goal for Ghana.
