Kaiobangi Sharks head coach William Muluya is a happy man despite their 1-3 loss to Gor Mahia in a league match played on Sunday at Thika Municipal Stadium.

Harun Shakava, Jean-Baptiste Mugiraneza and Jacques Tuyisenge scored for Gor Mahia before Mathew Odongo secured a consolation for Kariobangi Sharks but Muluya says the loss came at the correct time.

KPL Players who impressed on match day 1

“This has been a good experience. My players took long to familiarize themselves with the opponent and they only showed up in the second half. I think we needed this setback at this time in the season so that we can know what to expect for the remainder of the season, and how much effort to put in training so that we can be better prepared to fight for results,” he told the league’s official website.

Kariobangi Sharks’ second league match is slated for Saturday against a team which is yet to be known owing to an ongoing case at the Sports Tribunal.
