AFC Leopards defender Yusuf Mainge is confident the club will do well when the Kenyan Premier league resumes this week.


The league has been on a halt for more than two months after a directive by the government to suspend sports and with the measures having been regressed by President Uhuru Kenyatta, the Football Kenya Federation announced that the resumption of the league will take place this week.

According to Mainge whose side are currently placed third on the log, the resumption of the league will have everyone starting from a clean slate and they were already looking to better their outing in the earlier stages of the season.


“I want to believe that we did well in the first games though I feel we could have done better. At times things don’t work out as you plan but being third gives us a place to start from. There are no easy games in the division now that we are heading into the business end of the season but I believe in the players we have and Im confident that we will be better when we resume,” Mainge told Pepeta.


CAF Dream

Despite their position, Mainge insists that their dream is to participate in CAF competition last season and will do everything that the dream is realized.


“We still have a good chance of winning the league and want to win the Cup (FKF Shield) too. When we achieve one we will be in CAF next season and it’s a stage every footballer in the country wants to participate in. It’s an aim and I hope we achieve that,” he added.


Leopards have been scheduled to take on Mathare United on Wednesday 12 May when the league resumes.
