Recent performance down to Baraza, says Sofapaka defender

Recent performance down to Baraza, says Sofapaka defender

18 May 2019, 14:15

Sofapaka defender Faina Jacobs has revealed his recent fine performances are down to head coach John Baraza.

Faina says the confidence shown in by the tactician has challenged him to give his best when handed a starting opportunity. He has been an ever-present figure in the backline since coach Baraza took charge and his partnership with Moussa Omar has been rock solid. Faina did not play much at the start of the season.

“As a player, the most important thing for you is playing time and when coach Baraza showed confidence to give me a starting place, I had to work hard to repay his faith. Every time I would be on the pitch I wanted to play my best game possible and not let him down,” Faina said.

“For him to give me a starting position meant he saw something in me and I had to deliver. I kept pushing each game and the teammates have also helped me a lot to play each game better. The season has turned out very well and actually better than I thought. For me, this is a good step and hopefully, it can be a springing board for next season.”

Faina will miss Saturday afternoon’s game against Nzoia Sugar in Bungoma as he is suspended having picked up five yellow cards.
