Wazito have started an early building process ahead of the season with the hope of making an impact in the maiden appearance in the country’s top football competition.
Speaking after a Jamhuri Day celebrations match against Posta Rangers at Kasarani stadium, Wazito coach Frank Ouna said the team spirit in the team was alive and they are ready to plunge into the deep waters of the SportPesa Premier League, come next season.
“Winning was important for us but I feel delighted that I was able to identify the strong and weak points in my youthful side. The win has also motivated us and encouraged my new signings to work extra hard to gain a starting slot in the team,” said Ouna.
Rangers coach Sammy Omollo said it was too early to judge his players despite the loss to Wazito during the celebrations match, in which they lost 0-1.
“Personally, I am impressed by my new signings led by Teddy Nganga from Nakuru All Stars and also goalkeeper Lucas Indeche. We have never trained for the entire week but I am impressed by my team’s performance and I believe we have a bright future,” said Omollo.
