Sofapaka skipper has exuded confidence that the team will be ready to take the rest of the teams when the 2019/20 Kenyan Premier League kicks off.
The league is slated to begin at the end of August 2019 and according to Maelo as quoted by the club’s website everyone is training hard in the team to ensure they are in top conditions ahead of the new campaign.
“We started a bit slow but now we have picked up so well. We are training hard trying to get into the best physical shape and the players are giving their all. We know it is going to be a competitive season and everyone is giving their best,” remarked Maelo.
On the new coach, Maelo said they were still trying to have a grasp of his philosophy and were working to gel with the new players that have arrived in the team.
“We have the new coach in and some new players too and we are trying to gel as well as grasp the coach’s philosophy and how he wants us to play. So far so good but there is still work to be done,”
“It was great to play a friendly together so that we know exactly how everyone plays, how we get to run and move in the new systems and this has been a learning game for us. We look forward to the next friendly game to perfect everything,” added the defender.
The team will need to find perfect replacements in the strike force after losing Stephen Waruru, Pistone Mutamba and Umaru Kasumba who joined Zambian side Zesco United.
