Relegation struggling club Amagaju FC are optimistic they will get out of the relegation zone despite having lost ten matches this season in the Turbo King league.
Head coach Godfrey Okoko said over the weekend that he has high hopes of his side returning back to avoid being relegated at the end of this season.
The Southern Province-based is placed thirteenth tied on 7 points with Esperance who are the tip of the table in 15 matches played this season.
“I am quite sure that we will come back and win again. we are working hard though it’s not that easy. I was tasked with a mission of ensuring that Amagaju doesn’t drop into the second division league and am still positive this will be reached,”said Okoko.
He noted, “The players should be commended for putting up a tough fight throughout the season. Sometimes, we are not consistent enough but we have to try and get back to our level,” added the former La Jeunesse and Mukura coach.
Amagaju plays away to fellow relegation-placed side Esperance at Mumena Stadium and this the match the Burundian tactician must win if his chances of getting out of the relegation zone are to be realised.
