Ouma draws Sofapaka positives



Former Kenyan Premier League champions Sofapaka have not had the best of seasons this year, finishing fourth on the table with 48 points – a hefty 12 points behind league champions Tusker.

However, their coach David Ouma is unfazed. Ouma says the team are still reconstructing after upheavals in the coaching department, and feels there is still plenty to play for given their ongoing participation in the President’s Cup.

The former Rangers FC tactician added the fact that a number of the team’s players are being eyed for moves abroad is a good indicator that the club is moving in the right direction, and he backed Batoto Ba Mungu to be a force next year.

“We may have missed out on the league title, which was among our key ambitions but I do not think we underachieved. We are still reconstructing especially after the recent changes in the coaching department and I can say we are not so badly off,” said Ouma.

“A number of teams outside the country are after our players which I don’t think would be the case if we were doing it wrong. I believe we are moving in the right direction and if we stick together I know next year we will be a greater force than the current one.”

Ouma took over from Salim after the former Mathare United trainer was sacked but he fell down the pecking order again with the arrival of Englishman Stewart Hall before ascending again when Hall left.
