Expect minimal midseason transfer activity, Mokua assures

Bungoma based Kenyan Premier League (KPL) side Nzoia Sugar will strengthen in the midseason transfer window, which is set to open in March, but club chairman Ngisa Mokua has stated that there will be no massive inbound movement.

The club has registered massive improvement after a mass exodus at the tail end of the 2018 campaign and the chairman says it is only logical that they keep a majority of the team intact as they look to build on their preset targets at the start of the season.

Inherit plans

The club is targeting about three players, according to the chairman, who also indicated that following the departure of head coach Nicholas Muyoti, the new coach being sought will inherit plans set by Muyoti, to an extent that it is applicable for him.

“At the moment we have no news about the particular players we will bring on board but I can assure we will have two to three new players for the second leg. We have a good team but we need to strengthen for the grueling second leg.

“This is a plan we had set well in advance with Muyoti and once we get the new coach, he will see what to integrate in his plans, because we will allow him implement his philosophy,” he noted.

Tricky clash

Nzoia Sugar has a tricky clash this weekend; the team takes the long trip to Mombasa, where it will face league leaders Bandari FC, who are currently under the tutelage of a man who knows the Millers so well – Bernard Mwalala.

Mwalala coached Nzoia Sugar for three – and – a – half years, helping the team scale up from the second tier before decamping last year.
