Ulinzi Stars striker Stephen Waruru is confident that the soldiers will win the title this season.
The young soldier has revealed that the team is taking the season a match at a time and that they are determined to fight for the title. The forward, who has scored seven goals in 10 games for the soldiers is pleased with how the team performed in the first leg and says they will give it a bigger push in second half of the season.
“It has been great, working as a team and trying to do better in each game. We want to push for the title and we need to take a match at a time and give our best. Everything is possible,” Waruru told the club's official website.
The pint-sized assassin has made a resounding return to the team after spending close to two seasons away on military duty with a powerful scoring statistic. “I was patient and I knew my time would come. I was working hard in training and I used to tell my teammates that I would come back in the fourth match and score. They used to think I was mad and were laughing at me. Only Jacktone (Odhiambo) took me seriously,”
“I came back in the fourth match of the season and kept my promise. It gave me a lot of confidence moving forward.”
Waruru, who won the Golden Boot in 2012 after notching 12 goals, is hoping to achieve the same feat again and the biggest target is to surpass his best scoring season.
