Okumbi promises positive future results

Kenya football coach Stanley Okumbi has assured the country of positive results in future games despite their poor run of form in their two friendly ties in Spain last week.

Okumbi who also doubles up as the SportPesa All Stars coach lost 4-0 to second division team, Cordoba CF in their first friendly match before going down 1-0 to Sevilla Atletico in their second match to the disappointment of Kenyans who fear for worse as since the nation prepares to host African Championship of Nations (CHAN) early next year.

On his part, the soft -spoken coach blamed lack of proper preparedness for his loss in the foreign land citing his team had only three days to practise before they jetted out of the country for the friendly matches.

“Our match against Posta Rangers where we drew 1-1 was the only match we had to gauge ourselves in the three days we had before departing for Spain.

In our first match we conceded two easy goals that the custodian could have easily stopped but for the penalties well it goes without saying.

We count it as a victory for us because of playing an opponent who has had an opportunity to cross paths with some of the best clubs in the world like Real Madrid and FC Barcelona.

For us not to have conceded over seven goals we count it a win,” said Okumbi during a luncheon organized by SportPesa at a Nairobi hotel to welcome the squad back in the country.
