Head coach Divaldo Alves says he is under no pressure ahead of his first match in the Kenyan Premier League against Posta Rangers on Friday in Narok. Coach Alves joined the team three weeks ago and says he feels the team is ready to start the new campaign on a high.

“My expectation for the first game of the season is three points. We have some information about Posta and we know that they have a coach who loves to play a defensive style and we will work on a strategy to open them up,” coach Alves said.

“I am under no pressure really. Of course in football whether you are top or bottom there is always pressure but for me, I have a lot of experience and I know that this is the first match and we should be calm and composed for it,” he noted.

On how the team has shaped up since his arrival, coach Alves says he is happy with the progress, but also states he hopes to improve the team further.

“The players have very high commitment and I am impressed with what I have seen. I love their ability, their skills and technique on the ball. Now we need to polish them like a rough diamond to be more of a beauty. We can improve a lot,” he noted.
