But I must say we are proud of the progress the team is making under Manoah,” he said. He added: “Players are very much motivated and have shown a great improvement and character. As we still look out for other options in terms of coaching we believe the team is now fully stabilized and we look forward to a strong start when the league starts.” He urged the players to give their best in their quest to realize their dream of helping the team clinch the Premier League title for the first time.
