Hull City coaches hail Tusker FC for KPL win, AFC Leopards strong contenders next season

Hull City FC coaching duo of Richard Naylor and Kris Blakeston who are currently in Kenya have applauded Tusker FC for winning the Kenya Premier League title with two matches to spare and were impressed by the level of Kenya’s top flight football after watching two weekend matches.

Speaking after the Tusker versus AFC Leopards game at the Afraha Stadium in Nakuru County, the coaches were impressed with the league winner’s opponents who provided formidable opposition to Tusker FC who left it late to win the match and eventually scoop top honors in this season’s Kenya Premier League.

“It was thrilling for us to witness the title being decided by a second half goal after AFC had held their own playing good football for the better part of the game. It is evident that Kenyan teams put in a lot of work and we are excited at the level of football we have witnessed so far,” said Richard Naylor, Head Professional Development Coach.

As they continue their scouting mission in Kenya to select the ‘SportPesa All Stars’ team to face a Hull City side in February 2017 in the United Kingdom and in a return leg on Kenyan soil, their work is cut out in selecting the best 50 players for a training camp in January 2017.

The coaches will from tomorrow attend training sessions at Ulinzi Stars, Western Stima, Chemelil Sugar, Muhoroni Youth, Sony Sugar and KK Homeboyz FC as they gear up to watch Kenya’s senior team in action at the Kasarani stadium on Saturday 12th November, 2016 in a friendly against Mozambique.
