Sofapaka defender happy with start



Sofapaka defender Felly Mulumba is convinced that 2013 will be a successful season for the 2009 Kenyan Premier League (KPL) champions.

His major source of inspiration as Sofapaka continue with preparations for the season is from the newly signed players at the team, who he says will add a combination of positive attributes to the side.

The Congolese born defender said all the shortcomings that characterized the team’s season last year have been well been addressed through the signings, and singled out former TP Mazembe forward Koko Manopi and Zimbabwean Obadiah Tarumbwa for praise.

“We have started the year well and I am convinced that this season we will be better than last year. The mistakes we did last year have been addressed and we hope for a trophy-winning season,” he said.

“We got some exciting new players to the team now. They are in a class of their own; Koko for example brings to the team some good experience after spending time at TP Mazembe, Obadiah Tarumbwa is also great and has good speed, Agwanda is so talented and also gifted on throw ins. All the players are good so we are hopeful. We will be a force to reckon with.”

Sofapaka won the inaugural Kenya Power Charity Cup tournament early in February to kick start their season. The team is scheduled to start its league campaign with a game against Thika United on 24 February at the City Stadium.
