Posta Rangers have picked up just six wins all season and have been battling relegation, with their coach David Kamau revealing that steering the side out of the relegation dog fight will change the player's mentality.
Posta have endured a wretched season that has seen them part ways with Sammy Pamzo Omollo at the start of the year and replaced him with David Kamau. The Mailmen are just four points off the relegation zone, sitting at 15th with 25 points from 26 games. Posta survived being entangled in the relegation/promotion playoffs by a single point last season and would not want to repeat the same mistakes this season.
In an exclusive interview with futaa, Kamau noted that the poor results have been down to a mental problem, "I can’t talk much about the situation because the team even last season was battling relegation so this is a situation the team has been having and since coming here I’ve analyzed that moving out of the relegation zone will improve our mentality and come next year we’ll be competing for the top eight.
Kamau was left frustrated after his side draw 1-1 with Kariobangi Sharks over the weekend, "I’m disappointed because we had a lot of clear cut chances but we didn’t take them and we failed to secure maximum points but the most important thing about today’s game is my boy’s mentality, coming from a goal behind then equalizing and almost getting all three points. At this stage of the season, the one point is good for me."
The former Thika United and KCB coach also shared on how coaching Jockins Atudo has been for him, "He is a player I’ve been working with even in the national team so I don’t see any difference right now and when we were with him in the national team. So I think it is a situation whereby I’m in love with what he is giving the team in terms of experience."
