Muyoti: We don’t want to pull a 2012
AFC Leopards team manager Mr. Nicholas Muyoti
wants everyone associated with the team to strive to ensure that internal
strife which characterized the team’s season in 2012 never happens again.
As the team prepares for the 2013 season, the former Kenyan international said they are eyeing the league title and added that if that is to be achieved too much talk should be shunned as it affects the players psychologically.
Eye on title
-We can win the league title; it is all possible if we do not allow a repeat of what happened to us last year. It is not about talking but doing; we want to concentrate on the pitch and not on too much talk. Too much bickering affects the players psychologically.
-Last season was a good example of what should never be repeated here, he told futaa.com.
The head coach, Tom Olaba was also of the same view and promised not to underrate opposition from the other 15 teams in the championship.
-First, I can't win the league alone as coach Tom Olaba. It has to be a combined effort from players, the EC, fans and the entire technical bench.
-We have to remember that there
are 16 teams in the league and we have to first compete with 15. No team comes
in to be relegated, each has a plan to win the league. But if last season the
team was third then the only positions the team will go for are 2 and 1. We
want to win it, Olaba said.
AFC Leopards topped the standings for a good duration in the 2012 season but experienced a slump towards the end and just managed a third place finish, which ironically, was the team’s best finish since it was promoted in 2009.
