Ouma pleased with start



Kenyan Premier League (KPL) side Sofapaka kicked off their quest for a second league title in the perfect way after claiming a 1-0 win over Thika United in their opening game of the season at the Nairobi City Stadium.

Eugene Asike got the only goal of the game on 82 minutes and coach David Ouma, speaking after the game, said that indeed the game was tough but he shared his pleasure at having finished on top.

He lauded Thika United for a good game, adding that luck was just not on their side.

“It is always a good feeling when you win any game but it is best when you start the season with a win. The result in the game gives us confidence as we move forward. The players worked hard even when they did not have a lot of the ball and that is very commendable,” he said.

“Our opponents were on top of their game and I do not think they deserved to lose. They controlled the game especially in the second-half and created a few good openings, on another day they would have won, but we picked the three points and I am pleased at it as we focus on the assignments ahead,” he concluded.

Sofapaka’s next league game will be against Ulinzi Stars in Nakuru where Ouma will face off with his former boss Salim Ali on Friday.
