Kariobangi Sharks head coach William Muluya has warned his players to brace themselves for a tougher run this coming season.
Sharks kicked off the season on a high tempo, beating Arta Solar in the Caf Confederation Cup first leg of the preliminary round before seeing off Gor Mahia in the Super Cup to win the first major trophy this season.
Muluya, though remained confident that his team will perform better and perhaps surpass the 2017 season that saw them finish third, the tactician in the meantime says that their new-found status will come with a hidden cost.
"This is just the beginning for us. We were looking forward for the start of the season and that is why we have kicked it off on the right foot.
“It is looking good so far but I think tougher games are yet to come. We should be prepared for that and have an immediate response. We will strive to give absolutely everything."
Sharks departed for Djibouti on Monday where they are set to face off with Arta Solar in the second leg where a draw will earn them a ticket to the next round.
