Sofapaka’s newly appointed assistant coach Ezekiel Akwana stated he rejoined his former club to aid coach Francis Haringingo win matches.
The former international who has previously been part of the Batoto ba Mungu rejoins the 2009 champions after serving at Muranga seals and Mathare United clubs.
Akwana believes his vast experience in coaching in the local league will play a huge role in making Sofapaka win their game against Nairobi City Stars this Saturday and finish the league among the top six teams.
“Am elated to be back at home and my main role as an assistant coach is to work together with coach Haringingo to ensure the club start winning their matches. We have a good team with talented, skilled and hard- working players that can help in producing positive results. As the head coach deals with the players my duty will be keenly studying and monitoring our opponents in order to be well prepared for combat when we take to the center stage, “Quipped Akwana.
In regards to having pressure after being brought in when the team is languishing at the bottom of the 18-team log with a single point from three defeats a draw Akwana stated, “Every coach is always after the three points and am no exception, we have a new coach taking over a team with a fair number of new players and this can be a little problematic. Its good that we have discovered the jelling problem now rather than later and dealt with it. With the kind of training we have had for last couple of days am assured of a win and fans to turn up in large number to help us in our quest to this season,”
