Wazito FC head coach Stewart Hall has challenged his charges to show passion and commitment as he seeks to help the team turn the tables following a poor run in the Kenyan Premier League (KPL).

A brace from John Makwatta over the weekend was enough for AFC Leopards to seal a double over the big spenders Wazito, whom despite investing heavily on experienced players have found the going tough lying 14th on the league’s standings with 11 points.

Following their winless run which has stretched to six matches, Hall has now admitted he is struggling to find explanations for his side’s dreadful form and he has urged his players to show character in the remaining KPL fixtures.

“I said before the game that Leopards have problems, they haven’t been paid for some months, but they turn up for training everyday they fulfill every fixture and they fight and win games with a lot of commitment.

They have tremendous character and the desire to fight and make their fans proud and I want my players to have that fight because the club leadership has invested a lot,” said Hall.

Hall termed their poor form as unfortunate adding that with the investment from the management, the team should not be battling to stay afloat in the top-flight for next season.

“We are struggling with transition because we have released 10 players and signed seven, but only three are eligible to play four others are yet to get internal and international transfer certificate. We have not changed the side we have kept who we think will add value and ‘chased away’ those we felt are not wanted,” he added

Wazito have already hit the ground running in the January transfer market and have already roped in Whvyonne Isuza, Dennis Sikhayi, Esuf Bourhana, Dennis Ng’ang’a and Kennedy Owino.

“These are quality players who will bring the fight for better results that we  want as  a team ,they are experienced and understand the league and we are hoping they will  be part of the team for the next match, “Hall told Citizen Digital
