Imonje pleased with improvement



Muhoroni Youth’s head coach Alfred Imonje is glad to watch his team acquire more tactical strength ahead of the league kick-off.

Citing the players’ output in their Saturday 9 February friendly match against Chemelil Sugar FC, Imonje says the players are more focused than they were in the past season and are also willing to give their all physically to ensure that the team performs well.

“Last year, as we made our debut in the Premier League, there was a lot of experimentation going on and the players were learning the ropes of the trade. Now you can easily tell that there is a major difference in the players’ attitude towards competition. They are more mature in their approach and I am sure if we keep up with this, we are certain to impress in the upcoming season,” said Imonje.

In the December-January transfer window, Muhoroni lost six of their key players. They then went on to sign 16 more, including three Nigerians – Ekene Umekwe, Joseph Emeka and Abbas Akinyemi.

The team narrowly escaped relegation in the 2012 season, their inaugural show in the first tier.

They time finished 14th, having picked up 27 points from 30 matches played.
