Mathare United coach Francis Kimanzi has tipped youngster Francis Omondi for greatness in his maiden Kenyan Premier League season.

Omondi, moved to Mathare last December from second-tier side Modern Coast Rangers, but the youngster is slowly making his way up the ranks, especially after his courageous move to step up to the spot and slot home the second goal in a 2-1 win over Nzoia Sugar.

“That surprises a lot of us because he has the belief and we think Francis just needs good guidance. He has the capability and character to fight at the top level,” Kimanzi told the club website.

“The boys are showing some character because it’s the second game that we worked very well. It also shows that we have some maturity and depth in the team. We can always get better."

Kimanzi also paid glowing tribute to Daniel Mwaura and Chris Ochieng’ for their stellar performances, having come in as second-half substitutes.

“It is important for players to show that they are very ready and sharp when they are needed. Mwaura and Chris showed it today and it is great to have such players who can do a good job for the team when called upon."
