Tough
Having watched several games in the tournament and opponents beef up prior to the new season, tactician believes it is going to be tough.
“This is going to be the toughest and competitive season, teams like Kabras have beefed up, Nakuru looks good, Nondies are good, Quins and Strathmore gave us run for our money so this is going to be the most open season,” he told the press after Floodlit final.
Depth
Though several teams will be without top players at the start of the season, Ndong believes that their absence will have a little impact since majority of the top teams have depth.
“The top six teams have depth, Like KCB have most of their players were absent (during the finals) but they managed to regroup and won. So the team that has an edge in terms of depth will win in the seasob,” he added.
