Sofapaka coach David Ouma: We are ready to clinch league title this season

The Batoto ba Mungu made history in 2009 by winning the Kenya premiership crown in their first year of top flight football but are yet to repeat the same fete since then
Sofapaka coach David Ouma says they are ready to win the league title this season after many years of missing out.

The club made history in 2009 by winning the Kenya Premier League (KPL) in their first year of top flight football.

Since then though they have won two Cup titles, the premiership trophy has remained ever elusive leading to the firing of several coaches.

"We are a unique club in the sense that we won the league in our first year of top flight football. This is something historical and as a result we are always expected to win it every year."

"Despite our efforts to do so in the past, we have not made it due to one reason or another but this year it remains our target and we remain capable of lifting it," Ouma told

He added:"Last year we came very close finishing the first leg at the top of the standings but lack of consistency let us down. We have since embarked on a restructuring process whose results is starting to show."

"Winning the Kenya Power Charity Cup is part of that result especially because it was against experienced teams. It was a big motivation for us even being selected by our fans to take part in the competition."

He heaped praise on his players for having a strong mentality pointing out this will be key in their title ambitions.

"Considering that in both our Charity Cup victories we had to come from a goal down to win shows that our players have matured and have the focus to win the league."

Ouma also defended the signing of veteran midfielder Titus Mulama, who rejoined the club after one season at Division One side Nakuru All Stars, pointing out that the player remains key to their plans this year.
