Kariobangi Sharks players are highly motivated at the prospect of the Football Kenya Federation Premier League (FKFPL) resuming this week.
Coach William Muluya while admitting that the three week suspension had slowed down their march, said that is now behind them.
“The fact that the league is supposed to resume this week is a very big motivation to our players. They are very excited and look forward to take to the pitch,” he said.
Sharks, placed fourth on the log are scheduled to take on Kakamega Homeboyz on Friday.
Muluya also expressed his delight that midfielder Julius Masaba has extended his stay at the club for another three years and believes this is a big motivation to the team and the player.
“It is a big statement that Masaba has extended his contract and it means he has settled and has a lot of confidence in the team. This is likely to rub off on other players,” he said.
Muluya also revealed that the team is determined to keep in step with the leaders to maintain their title ambitions.
“For now our target is to cut down Tusker’s leadership at the top. To reduce the point difference between us and them. From there, we want to ensure we are always second or third and only then can we have a realistic chance to win the league,” he said.
