NAIROBI, Kenya- Kariobangi Sharks FC coach William Muluya believes that his side have what it takes to beat Gor Mahia FC to be crowned 2018 Super Cup champions on Saturday, December 1 at the Kenyatta Stadium in Machakos.

The Super Cup is the curtain raiser for the 2018/19 SportPesa Premier League (SPL) season pitting the champions Gor and SportPesa Shield winners, Kariobangi Sharks.

Sharks made history when they won their first ever trophy by lifting the 2018 Shield Cup after a breathtaking 3-2 victory over Sofapaka FC at the Moi International Sports Centre, Kasarani on October 20.

The epic victory in the domestic cup for the club that came into existence in 2000 will see them represent Kenya in the second tier 2019 CAF Confederations Cup.

“We have played against Gor Mahia a couple of times and even though they have emerged victorious more times, I believe we have come of age and we are ready to go for it.

“The most important thing is to get a good performance from the players and set the pace that we will need as we go into the new SPL season,” Muluya told SportPesa News.

Their opponents booked the slot to feature in the Super Cup after successfully defending the league title they won in 2017 under the tutelage of ex boss, Briton Dylan Kerr.

Gor won their record-extending 17th domestic league crown with six games to spare and were also successful in defending their SportPesa Super Cup title, now known as the SportPesa Cup.

“Gor are the champions and they have been in top form for the past few years and have a confidence boost having just come from the United Kingdom to play against Everton FC.

“Lots of respect to them but when it comes to the field it’s evenly matched, we all have eleven players and it’s going to be a good game,” Muluya added.

Sharks are becoming a household name in the Kenyan football scene and will also get the chance to continue to prove their worth in the SportPesa Cup next year.

They will join Gor, AFC Leopards SC and Bandari FC from Kenya in the week-long tournament at the National Stadium in Dar-es-Salaam.

Record Tanzanian league champions Simba SC, Yanga SC and debutants Mbao FC make up the teams from Tanzania.
