Stima skipper welcomes coach Baraza



Western Stima captain George Wesa has welcomed newly appointed coach Francis Baraza to the Tusker Premier League club.

Wesa has plenty of respect for the former Harambee Stars assistant and Sony Sugar head coach, and is confident Baraza can help the side achieve their goal of a top-eight finish in the 2013 season.

“He is a very good coach, bringing on board the right motivation and know–how,” said Wesa. “It’s just what the team needs at the moment and my promise is that as the playing unit we will work with him well for the set goal. He has already said he wants to see the team qualify for the Top 8 Cup in 2014, which is already a good target.

“He is very welcome and I know his experience will be of much importance to the team. He is not a stranger to success or pressure at the highest level. He has been with Harambee Stars, and is also a league winner so I believe he will take us to the next level,” concluded an upbeat Wesa.

Baraza beat off competition from former AFC Leopards tactician Jan Koops and Uganda Under-20 trainer Paul Nkata to land the job after Leonard Saleh took up a position with Rangers FC.
