Wadda targets solid first leg
Nairobi City Stars head coach Bye Wadda has set his target for the 2013 Kenyan Premier League season; to finish among the top eight teams.
Speaking during the team’s training session at the City Stadium, Wadda said he was confident that the team would do well in the upcoming season.
“We survived last season but this season will be totally different. I now have ample time to study each of my players and I know by the time the season starts I will have a formidable team,” Wadda said.
“My target is to finish in the top eight category and I know it is achievable. I’ve made this clear to all the players. We hope to have a positive start to the season,” he added.
City Stars finished 13th on the 16-team table last season with 29 points and Wadda believes things will be better if they have a good first leg performance.
“How we start the season will determine the position we finish in this season in a big way. If we perform well in the first leg, as we are targeting, then I’m sure we will achieve our target of finishing among the top eight teams,” Wadda said.
“As the season progresses towards the second leg there are always many challenges, especially with injuries, so it’s always advisable to pick as many points as possible during the first leg,” he added.
