Sharks to do player performance analysis with help from Russian company

Kariobangi Sharks have signed a partnership with Russian sports performance analysis company InStat which is geared at improving the optimum levels of the team’s players.

The deal will see the firm provide Sharks’ technical bench with statistical data on how players have performed during games which in turn will make the coaches work much easier during team selection.

The deal comes just days after the William Muluya coached side announced a one year renewable sponsorship deal with sports betting firm Betway.

Deal welcomed

In a release sent to media houses on Tuesday, Sharks Chairman Robert Maoga welcomed the partnership as it is what modern football requires.

“Sports analysis is an important aspect of the modern game. You need to have specified information in all the details of the game. That is why we have gone for this partnership.

“Instat will help the technical bench with their analysis towards improving Kariobangi Sharks players to the next level.”

His sentiments were echoed by InStats regional officer Fredrick Otieno who added that the work his company is aiming to undertake will be made much easier by the fact that Sharks are able to broadcast their own matches.

Work easier

“We are happy to join hands with Kariobangi Sharks. The team’s capability to produce and broadcast their games will make out work much easier. We believe our analysis will go a long way in improving the performance of the team and the technical bench.”

Off the pitch, Sharks have made all the right moves this season but on it they have struggled and sit third from bottom on the KPL standings with just one win in 11 matches.

They next face off against KCB on Saturday with hopes that the latest good news will translate to results on the pitch.
