Mathare United's Kimani says the current impressive form is the best for the club since they won the Kenya league title four years ago
Mathare United captain Anthony Kimani says the current impressive form is the best for the club since they won the Kenya league title four years ago.
The “Slum boys” started this season on a wrong footing, picking up just three points in their first four fixtures but the appointment of Stanley Okumbi to replace Gabriel Kingi seemed to have been the turning point, with the side losing only one game in their last nine outings.
“This has certainly been the best spell for the team in a while certainly in the last four years. I must admit we had fitness issues when we started this season but the current trainer worked on that and instilled confidence.”
“He (Okumbi) has also produced the best out of the emerging players like Jesse Were and Andrew Tololwa.”
Kimani who was a constant figure in the national soccer team, Harambee Stars, then under the previous reign of coach Zedekiah ''Zico' Otieno, says he retains the hope of earning a recall.
“It is unfortunate I lost my place after getting injured. It’s all about remaining positive and hoping to catch the eye of the new man in charge.”
