Former international Boniface Ambani says KPL AllStars coach Stanley Okumbi is not to blame for the 4-0 defeat against Cordob on Wednesday night.

The Kenyan lads looked lost especially in the second half, struggling to string passes and managing a single shot on target courtesy of Vincent Oburu in the entire match.

The AFC Leopards junior team coach now says more is needed to help the game develop in the country instead of pointing blame fingers at Okumbi.

"We cannot blame the federation, players or coach, no! It is very simple; we need structures, functioning structures from a tender age…that is all we need. With structures, we can help the players develop technically from a tender age, not to mold them when they are already mature.

"But the exposure is good, we never had this opportunity during our days, it will help the players in future, good experience."

The AllStars team have two days before they face Sevilla in their final friendly on Saturday.
