Sofapaka coach pleased with start
Kenyan Premier League (KPL) side Sofapaka FC resumed training in preparation for the 2013 league season on Monday and so far the team’s head coach David Ouma is a satisfied man.
The coach admits that he is still restructuring the team, a process that started towards the end of the 2012 season, and he believes that 2013 will be a better season for the church-sponsored side.
He confirmed that all the players he expects to use in the 2013 season have reported fully fit and he hopes the fine form persists as the year progresses.
“I am happy with the attendance so far because all the players we expected to be with us for the season have already reported. Those who were with the national team on CHAN duty are also back and for us it is a full house. This week we are doing light workouts as I observe them, then serious work starts next week,” he said.
“I believe we will have a good season in 2013; we started restructuring last season and at the moment I can say we are almost where the team should be. We are at 95 percent of the restructuring and I am also glad that the players are responding well. I hope the players will also avoid long term injuries.”
The team has had a busy pre season so far, signing a number of key players, and the coach revealed that he will be naming his final squad for the season on Saturday 12 January.
