Former Black Sattellite coach jimmy Cobblah has won his first competitive match in the CAF Confederation Cup just days after taking charge of Togolese side Maranatha FC.
The Woumé-basedside crushed Liberian International Shipping & Corporate Registry(LISCR FC) by 3-0 in their preliminary stage clash on Sunday.

It marks a good start for the Ghanaian trainer, who lost his job after the Ghana under 20 side failed to quantify for the world Cup.

He says his return to Togo is a new challenge for him.

"Togo is my home now I was here sometime ago you know, so when they qualified for the confederation the president thought that he needs somebody who has experience to come and help so I have come to help my people" he said.

"Am happy for the boys because in the first half you could see they were better, they were better because I'v  just prepared this team for about two weeks and some few days.

"They have played together for a very long time and so we saw them in the first half and in the second half we mapped a strategy and we won".

Much was not heard about Cobblah's move to Togo after his exit from the Ghana under 20 coach.

The former Inter Allies coach believes his team is on a pole position to elminate the Liberian side following their convincing 3-0 victory on Sunday.

"It is going to be very difficult because the guys they have played together for a very long time but we thank God for the three goals we will take them out."

Their second leg duel is expected to come on 24th of this month.

Cobblah came under intense criticism for the abysmal showings at the 2019 Africa U-20 Cup of Nations in Niger.

His team failed to go past the group stage, which accounted for the failure to qualify for the U-20 World Cup plated in Poland in June.
