“I am looking forward to the new season. I have never been afraid of challenges. I know there are a lot of expectations especially after what I did with Tusker, but that is not enough to make me nervous or worried. Football is football. There are moments when things go well and many other times when nothing goes well,” said Nkata, who defied the prediction of pundits to win the 2016 league title with the brewers.

 “For me, the most important thing is to understand the players here, because it is only after I understand their qualities and capabilities that I can go about drafting a formula that will help us achieve the objectives we’ve set. I think it is too early to make any predictions,” he told the league’s official website.
