NAIROBI, Kenya- Newly appointed Kenya Commercial Bank (KCB) FC coach John Kamau is keen on guiding his new side to the Kenyan Premier League (KPL) after two unsuccessful attempts.
The Bankers, who were relegated in 2015, have found it difficult to work their way back to the top tier after spending two seasons in the National Super League (NSL) where they have missed out on the promotion slots.
Their latest stumble claimed Leonard Saleh who has since been replaced by Kamau who will be in charge of the team for the 2018 campaign. Kamau, who was charged with a similar task in 2015 at Posta Rangers FC, reckons that he has his work cut out.
“I know the task that is ahead for the technical bench. Nothing other than securing promotion to the top league will be considered as a failure,” Kamau said.
“Last season, they came close to securing promotion only missing it by three points. Our mandate is to better that performance,” added the Harambee Stars assistant coach.
The former Talanta FC boss says the Bankers have good quality within their ranks even as he looks forward to make a few additions. 2013 KPL top scorer and Most Valuable Player (MVP) Jacob Keli is rumoured to be on his way back to KCB.
Mathare United midfielder Musa Oundo as well as former AFC Leopards SC skipper Lucas Indeche have also been linked with a move to the Ruaraka based side.
