“You always receive everything you need from KPA and we have agreed that we want the title this season,” said Osero.

Bandari’s head coach Andre Casa Mbungo said that they are still in negotiation to add more players in the squad before the transfer window closes.

“We have brought these four here but we are targeting others so that we can score as well as defend going forward.”
