KCB head coach Zedekiah ‘Zico’ Otieno says the team will not engage in any transfer activities until they are certain when the Kenyan Premier League will start.

Speaking to Citizen Digital  ”Zico” added that they have already identified the players they want to sign and the department they need to strengthen but admits until the government gives the directive for football to resume they will remain ”quiet” in the market .

“We can’t start planning for a season we are not sure about the start, we have plans to strengthen the team because we have seen how our opponents are signing.

It will be one of the most competitive seasons we have seen in the recent years and we have to be ready for it because we have ambitions of winning trophies and when the government sets the rules for  football resumption we will definitely sign players to improve the squad ,” explained Otieno.

KCB have parted ways with eight players ahead of the new season. They include the 2017 bronze winner in the race for the golden boot Stephen Waruru, former K’Ogalo defender Pascal Ogweno, left-back Bolton Omwenga, and striker Benson Amianda.

Goalkeeper Allan Owiny has also been let go alongside Kenneth Mukuria, Erick Otieno, Brian Olango, and Gabriel Mugabo complete the list.

“We finished in a good position last season and when the new season begins we have to better that performance, and fight for the title.

We are yet to resume training because we are following the government regulations and waiting for further directives, we dont want to go against the rules set and we have to be patient,”added the former Gor Mahia man.
