Matano accepts second place

09 October 2015, 15:09

Nairobi - Robert Matano admitted Ulinzi Stars were disappointed not to challenge for the KPL title this term, but feels second is still a commendable achievement.

Few could match the pace of Gor Mahia this season after the Nairobi giants successfully defended the KPL crown they won last year, wrapping up the title with four games to spare.

And while the aim for Matano had been to lift the title, the coach said he was still happy to settle for a runners-up finish.

"We had planned to win the league. That is what we had set out to do this year, but we were inconsistent in the first leg and also at the beginning of the second leg. We let Gor run away with it and just could not catch up with them," he told the KPL's official website

"But second place is still a good position. Even in class, a student who finishes in the second position commands some level of respect, doesn't he?

"So we are definitely going to guard our position jealously and try and secure it in our next fixture so that we can relax."
