“We have lost 14 of our own and what we are doing now is filling the gaps left vacant. But also we shall review our squad and ensure we get the right players with the right experience from both locally and abroad,” Rachier told Citizen Digital.

He hinted at dropping some players in the squad but said that decision will be guided by coach Steven Pollack who will advise on which players he intends to work with.

Rachier added they wish to hasten their recruitment process for continental registration purposes since the the Confederation of African Football (CAF) has already released its calendar for the season.

“We shall not wait for the window period deadline of November 3 since CAF has released its calendar. We need to recruit faster and hit the ground running.’’
