No pressure for KPL title, says Kimanzi

We had a smaller target because we had to be realistic. To tell the players that we want to win the league after fighting relegation last season is a big step,”  the tactician offered.“Sometimes you don’t want to create tension in the group and you give attainable targets. But, I don’t see anything wrong to learn and still win something in the process.”He added; “We want to be another force in the league and do better than the previous two seasons. If you put yourself as a force then you are targeting anything achievable. We are not ruling out the league title because we have a team which we believe can face any challenge, take a game after game with passion and win.”Mathare United head coach Francis Kimanzi during training.

With the confidence and support I had, the program we made for them worked,” Kimanzi notes.Mathare United during training. Photo/TIMOTHY OLOBULU“We decided to start a foundation, genuinely sound and we walked without fear. We knew it was going to be tough. There was some false confidfence among the players. You could see that they want to do it but still had a long way to go,” He added.The tactician says he has been impressed with their growth and notes he is genuinely surprised that they have started hitting the right notes in just their second year together.“We had a grace period of three years for them to mature completely but they have completely surprised us. Almost 60, 70 percent has improved and if they can do it in the second year then it’s a great success,” the coach noted.The Slum Boys have only lost once this season, a 4-3 defeat at the hands of AFC Leopards in a match they led 3-1 at some point.But since then, they have won the next four matches back to back and Kimanzi only hopes they can remain consistent again for the next 10 games.They will be facing Posta Rangers in their next match on Sunday, a game Kimanzi says will be both very tough and very easy for his side.“We are playing against a tough team defensively but also, they don’t score. We only now have to worry about how we will open them up and get goals,” the coach noted.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more
