Bandari coach Muhiddin knows how to improve

26 November 2014, 13:28

Nairobi - Twahir Muhiddin is confident there will be a reversal of fortunes for his team next season, after emerging virtually unscathed last season.

Muhiddin is delighted with his players, primarily because they have now afforded him the opportunity to remedy some of the problems which existed last term, which is something he promises to do in 2015.

Bandari finished the 2014 season in the 13th position, just six points clear of the relegation zone. However, Muhiddin insists that it is not all doom and gloom for his squad, who have learned several important lessons this year.

"It is apparent we had a good performance last season (2013). We averaged a goal a game. This season we were poorer and were scoring less than a goal a match. Obviously we will need to increase our striking power and it is imperative that we sign up two or three quality strikes and we are already looking around," said Muhiddin.

"We want to build up on the base we have set over the past two years. Those in the team know what we want and where we want to go. We know the areas we need to improve on."

Muhiddin did acknowledge that there needed to a paradigm shift among the players in the squad, as their attitude in 2014 contributed significantly to the team's failures. He was nevertheless confident that this could also be remedied during the off-season.

"Many of our players are professionals but do not believe in themselves. They have to accept that they are professionals and play the game. They have to put in more effort. Football is their work, it is what they are paid to do," explained Muhiddin.

"Bandari should have done better this ended season. Players have to change their attitude."
