New Kenya Harlequins head coach Dominique Habimana is aiming at a top two finish in the 2019/2020 Kenya Cup season which is set to kick-off this weekend.
Barely a month after joining the Ngong road outfit, the Rwanda born tactician believes the team can reclaim the Kenya Cup title which they last won in 2012.
“We’re targeting to improve on our performance of last season with a top two finish being the aim this season. That will basically give us a slot in the play-offs semi finals and take a game as it comes aiming at the Kenya Cup trophy,” Habimana explained.
Being his second stint with the Quins, the former Simba assistant coach is hopeful that his charges will win their season campaign opener against Menengai Cream Homeboyz.
“The boys are well prepared for the match having tried some new things which I introduced to their playing system during the Floodlit tournament, I think that those techniques have come in handy and my boys are going to be victorious come Saturday,” said the former Simba assistant coach.
“I just joined the team recently and since it’s not a new club in the league I’m going to improve and bring some new tactics from the systems that were installed by my predecessors (Cardovillis and Ayimba) and make sure that we perform better than last season,” he enthused.
Quins have not bought new players ahead of the new season with Habimana promoting the young players to the senior squad after going through trials.
“Most of our young players are coming through to the senior squad after showing potential and determination in the trials,” he said believing that they’ll add value to the team.
Quins reached the Kenya Cup semis finals last season but were outshined 46-13 by eventual winners KCB in the semi-finals after finishing third in the league with 53 points, 21 points behind table toppers Kabras Sugar.
