Mathare to promote juniors after win
Mathare United U20 head coach Yusuf Chippo has revealed that a few of his players will be considered for promotion to the senior team after their heroics at the just concluded KPL U20 tournament.
Chippo who was on the bench in August when the team won the title for the first time, led it to glory after elevation, replacing Gabriel Njoroge and he says about five players have been earmarked for the senior team.
He pointed to the fact that a number of them could be ineligible for the tournament next year thus informing the move to promote them and while at it, he backed the team to continue doing well.
“We have a big chunk of players here who are between 16 – 18 years and those are the ones who will form a core of the team in the 2017 editions. Apart from those, about five members will ascend to the senior team.
“This team still has good potential and I believe they will continue to dominate in the coming editions. I am happy with the progress of this team,” he said.
