‘Zico’ to extend stay at Sony Sugar

The ex-international reveals to Goal that he has commenced negotiations with the sugar millers to extend contract at the club he helped avoid relegation

Sony Sugar coach Zedekiah Otieno has revealed he wants to extend his stay at the club next season and talks have already commenced in this regard.

Otieno joined the sugar millers four months ago replacing Sammy Omollo with the aim of helping the club survive relegation.

“We have already begun talks aimed at extending my contract at the club. We have big plans for the future and this includes finishing among the top eight next season,” Otieno told Goal.

Otieno has expressed confidence that next season will be better for his side, who struggled to make the cut at the end of this season.

“Compared to my first stint at Sony, last season was rough on us because we had so many problems. First of all we did not have a pitch to play and train in the first leg and were forced to move some of our matches to Gusii Stadium in Kisii.

“I am glad that this problems are now behind us and we can focus on doing much better next year.” With reports linking top goalkeeper Wycliff Kasaya to a possible move away from the club, Otieno said he is not worried about a possible move by the player insisting that he only believes in team work and not individuals.

“In my coaching career I always believe in team work and not individual players. So if anyone wants to go we cannot stop him. However, we have tied a good number of our players to a long term contract and remain confident we will keep most of them.”
