In Summary
  • Bandari will be parading a star-studded squad that is ready to conquer the continent.
  • Ours is give them the much needed support.

Ugandan import William Wadri and goalkeeper Michael Wanyika left Tunisia as heroes after literally helping Bandari Football Club go past their hosts into the second round of the second leg of the Caf Confederation Cup last weekend.

Wadri scored the lone goal that helped Bandari survive on an away goal decision while Wanyika, whom Bandari traded from Kakamega Homeboyz as a replacement for Farouk Shikalo, who joined Yanga Africans of Tanzania at the end of last season, saved a 60th minute penalty.

The home side was leading 2-0 after Ricardo Alves Perreira’s quick fire brace in the fifth and 22nd minutes.

As a result, Bandari sailed through to the next round which sets the stage for high octane clashes with some of the continent’s bigwigs.

Remarkable achievement

This in itself a historic feat since no Coast team has ever gone past the first round in this championship.

This is quite a remarkable achievement.

As we anxiously wait to know our playoffs opponents when the draws are done in Cairo this Wednesday, I want to praise Bandari’s board of management. They have shown professionalism in the team’s preparations for the continental assignments.

This made it possible for the team to excel.

Bernard Osero, Bandari’s board vice chairman, says their priority was a player-first approach.
