Azam in Nairobi tour

Big spenders Azam have arrived in Nairobi ahead of their series of friendly matches that will be staged in the capital against AFC Leopards, Sofapaka and KCB.

The Vodacom Premier League side had initially planned to play Gor Mahia who opted out and they were forced to replace them with KCB.

The Mapinduzi Cup champions will train at Nyayo Stadium on Friday.

Coach Stewart Hall explained the reason for the trip.

“We have travelled here to play friendly matches before our league resumes. We already had a date to play Gor Mahia but since they’ve been replaced by KCB that will see our schedule altered.”

“The whole team is here and we are ready to kick off the matches lined up for us,” he told supersport.com.

The squad includes of Kenyan duo of Joackins Atudo and Humphrey Mieno who propelled their side to Mapinduzi Cup glory when they beat Tusker 2-1 in the final.

Coach Hall returned to his club after a short stint at Sofapaka last year.

Since his return apart from inclusion of the Kenyans, he has signed Ugandan Brian Umony.
