Ugandan coach George ‘Best’ Nsimbe may have had a false start to his Tusker FC career but he remains positive.

The former Victors, KCCA and Vipers coach has failed to guide the Brewers past the preliminary stage of the CAF Champions League and also lost the KPL Super Cup to rivals Gor Mahia on Sunday.

Against K’Ogalo, Nsimbe was left impressed with his players despite the loss coming via a penalty scored by Rwandese international, Jacques Tuyisenge.

“We played well,” he is quoted by Soka.ke. “The players we selected gave their best on the pitch but our only undoing was not utilizing the many chances we created which happened to cost us at the end of the day,” he added.

I still believe I have the best and we are ready for the league.

Against Gor Mahia on Sunday, the former defensive midfielder handed debuts to compatriots Moses Ndaula and Marlon Tangauzi.

Tusker open their title defence against Nzoia United over the weekend.
