The internationals are looming and here at home the new coach has had his squad already assembled barely three weeks after his appointment. The Harambe Stars will be hoping to put on a more decent performance compared to what we witnessed during the reign of Kimanzi's predecessor Jacob Ghost Mulee.
The team is on a mission to bag in the top world cup qualfications slot, with their first fixtures against Uganda and Rwanda not being convincing the dream appears to be more farfetched especially with the impromptu resignation of Jacob Ghost Mulee and a 6 months contract given to Turkish national Engln Farat.
With the squad at hand, the key decession that the new star's manager will keep fans guessing about is his midfield combination. One area that our national team has struggled with for years with changes after changes without getting the chemistry they desire.
We've seen the return of Ismael Gonzales and Ovella Ochieng into the team and new call-ups of Keegan Ndemi Reagan Otieno Philip Mayaka and Erick Zakoyo to fight over the positions at the center line with the household midfield gems.
What Kenyans would be expecting is the usual lineup of Richard Odada, Lawrence juma and Kenneth Muguna, a combination that was almost showing signs of clicking in that if they were to be given more time together and this would have happened with Ghost Mulee at the helm.
But with the return of Gonzales we shall for sure witness a change either on Lawrence Juma or Kenneth Muguna being benched as the new coach would be hoping to approach the midfield on a different dynamic.
We've hadn't heard much from the new call ups, Philip Mayaka is a sensational talent coming up from Colorado Rapids and I feel he'll secure a slot in the final squad. Not taking anything away from Reagan Otieno, Keagan and Zakoyo but I feel the competition at the center is more elevated for their prowess.
