The Kenya Premier League serve up the most thrilling title races last season. Record Champions Gor Mahia eventually claimed the title but not without a very impressive run for their money from coastal based sie Bandari United.
Next season promises to be even more competitive and below we look at the teams that will be in the Kenya Premier League title race next season.
The record Champions made it 3 consecutive titles last season and will be even hungry for more next season. K’Ogallo will, however, be without 2 very important players next season.
Talismanic striker Jacques Tuyisenge and midfield Maestro Francis Kahata left the club and Gor Mahia is tey to adequately replace them. That aside though, the defending Champions are still miles ahead of most teams in the league and will still take a lot of effort to knock them out off their throne.
The Kenya Premier League moneybags. Wazito FC cruised to the National Super League title which earned them automatic promotion to the Kenyan top-flight league. The club has already signed 5 new players this transfer window and is circling around Gor Mahia’s captain Harun Shakava.
Led by their charismatic and controversial owner Don Riqo, Wazito intent next season is clear: winning the Kenya Premier League crown. Be sure the club will do anything in their power to make that dream come true.
Runners up last season, Bandari Fc made serious strides under Bernard Mwalala. The coastal based side was one of the few teams that beat the Champions.
Bandari also claimed the FKF shield cup to cap off a memorable 2019 season. Mwalala’s side has made very impressive signings this transfer window and has held on to their best players. They will definitely give it another go next season and maybe this time they could go all the way.
