Muhoroni Youth coach Alfred Imonje has said winning the league opener today against Western Stima is his prime goal.
Imonje has thrown weight behind his side ahead of the club’s first assignment ever in the Kenya Premier League (KPL).
“Winning this match is my focus right now, it will be a good opportunity to set the pace for the rest of the season. I believe I have a team to win the game” he told Feverpitch.
Imonje, who previously coached Western Stima, has promised to approach the game with all the seriousness saying much has changed since he was at the club and therefore cannot back on knowing them well.

“I was there three years ago, but things have changed. There are new players and tacticians, too. I want to prepare without banking on anything” he observed.
The veteran tactician will be spoilt for choice upfront having made several signings to bolster the department.
The forwards at his disposal include Geoffrey Simuyu, who was signed from Thika united, Paul Okol, Victor Amaka, and Moses Wandera who previously played for a club in Uganda.
The coach has confirmed that the match will be in Muhoroni, despite recent claims the stadium’s state was wanting.
His pre-season record gives him confidence. “We held a number of pre-season friendlies that we performed quite well. This gives us confidence we can do well.”
Imonje’s goal is to guide the club to finish among the top eight teams and stay in the premiership.
