Omondi targets second leg push
KCB coach James Omondi has been watching his new recruits in training and could not hide his satisfaction with their quality.
According to Omondi, the team is in high spirits at the start of the second leg and they have received a great boost after signing dependable players in the process.
The bankers who face Gor Mahia on Sunday are also hoping to end their traditional jinx of dwindling in their second leg run.
“I am very excited with the kind of players that the club has brought on board in the mid-season since they are very excited and ready to perform even better,” he said.
“We strongly felt that we needed to deal with quality rather than quantity in the signings that we carried out and the idea seems to be bearing fruits for us. The players we have added have both experience and skill and these are qualities we need in the second leg campaign as we move to silence critics.”
The club has performed well in the first leg in recent times but would go on to lose their footing in the last quarter over the last two consecutive seasons.
This trend is, however, bound to be confined to history if James Omondi’s plans for the second leg come to fruition at the end of it all.
KCB signed three players, namely former Gor Mahia forward Dan Makori, and former Rangers pair of Benedict Owuor and Edwin Mwaura. They also extended the contract of Elvis Ayany for an additional two years.
