Kenyan Premier League (KPL) side Kariobangi Sharks assistant captain Patila Omoto is positive the team will lift itself off the rut it finds itself in after 12 matches in the season and has urged his teammates to keep fighting.
Sharks have managed just one win in 12 games they have played so far, marking their toughest run of matches since getting promoted three seasons ago. The team suffered its heaviest loss in its KPL era, falling 2-5 to KCB on Saturday 30 November in Match Day 12.
Omoto believes apart from playing well, sticking together and focusing on getting the team back to winning ways is the only remedy at the moment.
Quoted on Sharks website, Omoto said, “We know it is a difficult moment. For most of us, we have never been in such a situation. It not where we want to be. Everyone is pulling together and as the leaders in the team, we are trying to psych up the squad, to have that belief once again.”
“Great players also show their other side in times like this. I believe we have mentally strong players and now is the time to show that. The time to fight for this badge. We will keep pushing hard.”
Up next for Sharks is a Friday 6 December home game against Tusker FC at MISC, Kasarani.
