Sofapaka goalkeepers trainer George Wambugu has expressed satisfaction with his trainees' readiness for the 2018 season.
Sofapaka added a third goalkeeper Emmanuel Opiyo from Nairobi City Stars to join all time number one Mathias Kigonya and Reuben Juma. Wambugu believes that the trio are up-to task to guard the club's goal post in the upcoming assignments.
- For sure, the three goalkeepers have given their all in training and I must say that whoever will be considered for duties will do well. I have conducted drills including saving at tight angles and penalties and I’m totally satisfied, Wambugu told the club portal.
On his part, Opiyo admits that he has learnt a lot from his trainer since joining his new club. He further hopes to be fully incorporated into the team ranks.
- Wambugu is a goalkeeping coach per excellence as I have a learned more from him. Since joining Sofapaka ranks, I keep on working hard and hopefully, I should be incorporated in the team’s starting line – up sooner rather than later, Opiyo said.
Sofapaka has recruited massively in readiness for the league. Ellie Asieche, Ibrahim Kitawi, Kepha Aswani and Stephen Waruru have all joined the side in the ongoing transfer window.
