Nakumatt confident of getting quality players
Nakumatt FC has witnessed massive departures after completing another troubled season in the Kenyan Premier League (KPL) in 2018 but the team’s assistant coach Ben Bella is confident they will have a formidable team in the new season.
After a brief spell when the team had a Francis Mureithi, a Nairobi based politician as the main sponsor, the team has had unending financial woes, which saw the team finish on a low and had to go to the playoffs.
The Shoppers managed to see off Ushuru in the two legged affair to maintain their top flight status but what has followed is an exodus of key players as they search for greener pastures.
Ben Bella says they will conduct a good recruitment exercise to replace the exiting players and plan well for the new season.
“There is nothing unusual in players moving after a season. Players are always bound to move in search of better prospects or playing time and that is mostly their choice but I believe matters will improve for us soon and we will be able to have a good team.
“For the players leaving, I believe we will still get replacements,” he said.
Among the confirmed departures so far include Clinton Kisiavuki (KCB), Eugene Ambulwa (Wazito), Tom Adwar (Western Stima) and Joe Waithira (Wazito).
