Berekum Chelsea coach Tony Lokko has hailed his team for their 2-0 win over Atlabaara FC in their opening Champions League match on Sunday but believes his team could have done more.

The Blues secured the healthy first leg advantage courtesy a brace from midfielder Jackson Owusu.

Coach Lokko despite hailing his team for the vital home win against the South Sudanese side believes his team could have recorded an even impressive win if not for their rustiness.

“I think we are a bit rusty because we did not play many friendly matches before this game,” he told Metro FM.

“Either ways, the team did very well to deliver this victory and I believe it will serve as a springboard for us to do well in the second half of the league season.”

Chelsea who made a strong impact in their debut campaign in the Champions League two seasons ago hope to relive their glorious days despite their poor domestic form this term.

The Blues will travel to South Sudan this weekend for the return encounter of their Champions League tie against Atlabara.
