Posta Rangers head coach John Kamau has vowed to work on his players fitness in order to make them a competitive side in the 2018/19 Kenyan Premier League (KPL) season.
The tactician, who has formerly worked with KCB, Thika United and FC Talanta believes his team lacks the required fitness level with their KPL peers but thanked his predecessor Sammy Pamzo Omollo for his contribution to the side, including bringing on board a number of young players who he believes are doing well in the top flight.
“First I have to work on the fitness level of the team because it is below par. I am happy with what my predecessor Sammy Omollo did because he brought in some young boys and I think they are giving a good account of themselves, that’s a job well done,” Kamau said.
On his ambitions with the team, Kamau noted that they are looking to better last season’s performance with a top ten finish being the main target but urged his players to work harder to dominate matches, have the right mentality and bury the chances they have been creating if they are to achieve their goals.

“We need to be more dominant and have the right mentality because I think we have been creating chances and it’s just a matter of burying them going forward. My short term plan will be to improve on last season’s performance and I think a top ten finish will be a good thing for the team to start with. Then we have to rejig to see what we can bring in before we can start thinking of the long term plans,” Kamau added.
Rangers, currently placed 14th on the log with six points will be travelling to Awasi to face Chemelil Sugar FC in round seven of league action.
