Kimanzi praises players after Bandari draw

Wazito FC head coach Francis Kimanzi has lauded his players following the 2-2 draw against Bandari FC on Sunday at the Kasarani Annex.

William Wadri gave Bandari the lead on the stroke of halftime before Michael Owino drew the hosts’ level early in the second half. Kevin Kimani then gave Wazito the lead via a stunning free-kick before Benjamin Mosha earned Bandari a point with a late leveler.

In his post-match interview, the former Harambee tactician heaped praise on his players. He hailed their fighting spirit after coming from behind to take the lead before Bandari leveled the scores.

“It is important to appreciate the players’ efforts. Coming from a goal down to take the lead is not easy although it would have been marvelous if we had won the game,” he said.

Kimanzi was not bothered much with the fact that his side dropped points from a winning situation.

“Squandering advantage is normal in football and very common especially in the process of building a team. We drew against a side which is ranked above us and has been playing together for a while so for me this is not a bad result,” he added.

Next for Wazito is an away match against Sofapaka.
