Sofapaka boss Baraza more than confident ahead of the big kickoff

Sofapaka FC head coach John Baraza is confident his team is ready for the upcoming 2020/21 Football Kenya Federation (FKF) Premier League campaign primed for this weekend.

The 2009 champions have made several quality signings in preparation for the new term.

According to Baraza the players have prepared well physically and psychologically, noting that they have a higher chance of winning the league this season.

“We are happy the league is back, we have prepared very well and I am looking forward to good results, I have a solid side and I am sure we are going to perform better than last season,” Baraza told Citizen Digital.

“The league has always been tough regardless of the team we are playing, so we are not taking anyone lightly. We will have to give our best and take our chances; Bandari are a good side and I know they will offer us stiff competition.”

Brian Kayanja, Nicholas Sebwato, Cersidy Okeyo, Isaiah Wakasala, Thomas Wainaina, Ronald Okoth, and George Maelo are some of the players who parted ways with the Nairobi-based side owing to different reasons.

Batoto ba Mungu replaced them with seven new signings among them Michael Bodo, Isaac Mitima, Michael Karamor, Michael Kibwage, Michael Bodo, Kevin Omondi, Roy Okal, and Paul Kiongera.

“They are good players who will give us different dimensions when it comes to game situations,” Baraza continued.

“I am confident they will give us what we lacked in the abandoned 2019/20 season and we will be among the top teams in contesting for the league title this season,” he concluded.
