Medeama coach Carlos Roberto Paulette believes his side deserve praise despite failing to reach the Group stage of the CAF Confederation Cup.
The Mauve and Yellows beat AC Leopards 2-0 at the Sekondi Stadium and tied 2-2 on aggregate but they were knocked out 5-4 on aggregate.
Paulette, who watched from the stands due to a CAF ban after getting sent off in the first leg, was delighted with the performance of the team and not the score line.
â€œI am proud of the players. We wanted to win the game and we were able to win it,â€ the Peruvian said.
â€œBut unfortunately we have been eliminated on penalty shootout.â€
â€œNevertheless, we have lived to our objectives since penalty shootout could go to either side.â€
