Bitok urges more exposure to raise Kenyan game
- Rwanda national volleyball teams' head coach Paul Bitok says Kenya needs to expose its players to professional leagues in order to make them a more competitive unit
- Bitok's charges crushed Kenya 3-0 during Wednesday's All Africa Games Qualifiers in Kasarani where the hosts have put up a dispiriting campaign
Rwanda national volleyball teams’ head coach Paul Bitok says Kenya needs to expose its players to professional leagues in order to make them a more competitive unit.
Bitok’s charges crushed Kenya 3-0 during Wednesday’s All Africa Games Qualifiers in Kasarani where the hosts have put up a dispiriting campaign.
“Kenya is a good team and the only thing they are lacking is professional play, local agents should allow players to go out and play for professional clubs outside the country.
“I send my player out and right now we have players in Europe, Japan and also some in Uganda,” Bitok said.
All players in the 12-member Kenyan national team name by head coach Moses Epoloto play in leagues within the country.
Bitok, a Kenyan native, trained most players he faced against and although he regrets winning against his home country, he says he has a duty to fulfil as the Rwandan coach.
“I want to apologize to Kenya for the defeat, I do believe am a professional coach and I have to deliver my duties to Rwanda as far as my contract is concerned, they will just have to forgive me,” he said.
Kenya will face Egypt later Wednesday while Rwanda tackle Uganda as curtains fall on the AAG Zone Five Games.
