Ouma encouraged despite defeat



The 2009 Kenyan Premier League champions Sofapaka suffered a pre-season defeat in a high profile friendly match with Tanzanian outfit Azam FC, falling 1-0 at the Nyayo National Stadium last Sunday.

However, in the aftermath of the game, Sofapaka coach David Ouma, who went head-to-head with his former boss Stewart John Hall, lauded his charges for their output in the clash.

Ouma termed it unfortunate that his team lost despite being the better side in the tie but with only two weeks of training done, he feels his charges can take a lot of inspiration from the game.

“I think the standards are good as per the output in the game. It is only our second week in training so I believe we are on the right track. From the friendly match I wanted us to work on momentum and it worked well because we dominated most parts of the clash,” Ouma said.

“They only got good in the final, say, 15 minutes and I should add that it was unfortunate for us to lose since we also created the best chances and we defended well. The general performance was commendable and I am content.”

The coach also spared a word on his newly acquired players.

“A good percentage of the new players also did well though there are some technical aspects that we need to work on because there are levels we want to reach,” he said.
