- As the rest of the world highlight the negative impact of the coronavirus (covid19), Sammy Omollo has his own story. He believes KPL suspension has come at a bad time for his side.
The tactician said that his squad were getting to their best in the top tier before games were suspended due to Covid19
The top tier took a break owing to the Covid19 pandemic and if the situation is controlled, teams will be back on the pitch by April 3. While the 49-year-old acknowledges KPL is not in control of what is happening and is in support of the suspension, he believes it came at just the wrong time for his team.
“This Covid-19 came at a bad time for us, we were getting to our best shape,” Omollo said.
“We were picking up and the Gor Mahia match could have been a good test for us to gauge our improvement especially at the back. I understand the situation is global and we have no control over it at the moment. KPL acted in the best of our safety but I believe a solution is imminent.”
The former Kenya defender has also explained the impact this break will have on his team. He (Omollo) has dashed any hope that his team’s current form will last to the return of the KPL.
“When we resume, we will have like a mini pre-season for players to catch-up and continue from where they left. Yes, they might be active from their places, but I do not think they will remain at the same top-level,” Omollo concluded.
The Postal Rangers are currently placed 11th on the table with 30 points. They have managed to collect seven wins, nine draws and seven losses in the 23 matches played. The suspension has a disadvantage on the Omollo boys’ form that would have helped them charge forward to the top ten.
