Egypt forward Geddo defended manager Bob Bradley following the shock exit from the Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers as he slammed the notion of firing the American.
The unexpected defeat to minnows Central African Republic cast slight doubts over the future of Bradley as Egypt manager, despite a good start in the World Cup qualifiers.
“Yes we (players) were at fault. We were not fully focused because our concentration was entirely on the World Cup and this is not an excuse,” Ahli forward Geddo told FilGoal.com.
“I think that only players should take the blame for the elimination. I believe that concentration on the pitch is not the responsibility of the management.
“I am completely against changing coach Bradley. We became used to his system and we know how to deal with him.
“If he goes now we’ll be back to square one and this will surely cost us the top spot in the World Cup qualifiers.”
Egypt’s next competitive game takes place in March 2013 when the Pharaohs host Zimbabwe in the World Cup qualifiers.
