Ochomo targets improvement
Wycliffe Ochomo is happy at Ulinzi Stars despite recent reports linking him with a move away from the club.
Ochomo will start the season as part of the Ulinzi set-up after being named in the club’s final squad for the upcoming season.
The lanky former Gor Mahia and Congo United striker had a mixed first season with the soldiers, not hitting the heights many had expected. And after the off-season stories, he says that he is happy at the club and will prove himself this coming season.
“I am happy here at Ulinzi. They have a good support network and a wonderful administration which has treated me well,” he said. “It was a slow season last year for me and the club too because we just did not get going. There were changes here and there and it showed in our performances.
“This year we have a new coach who is working hard to make a good impression. All the players too are looking forward to a better season ahead. I too would like to increase my goal tally so it will be a big season for me and the club. Looking forward to it.”
The club lost to Gor Mahia in the Top8 final last season and the striker hopes that this season they can pick up some silverware.
“We lost last season to Gor Mahia even though we had high hopes. This year we hope it can be different so that we can win something,” he added. “That is the bottom line for us.”
The Stars have just finished a two-week training camp in high altitude as they prepare for the coming season.
