Khamati: I’ll Rediscover My Form and Play in CECAFA

Everyone is asking, who is AFC leopards lead striker? Ever since the departure of Austin Ikenna, Jacob Kelli and Noah Wafula, the remaining lot has not found the back of the net in the second leg of the KPL save for Khalid Jumaan. 

Fourfourtwomedia  engaged the only out-and-out striker remaining at the club, Michael Khamati, and we sort answers as to what is affecting the man who scored 48 goals in two seasons at the Administration Police FC. 

With the Kenyan Premier League match against Western Stima coming rather too early, the AP officer feels that he has let his fans down this season. 

“I have not lived up to the billing and it is taking toll on me. I came here with a good record but I haven’t really stepped up my authority.

“When I came in, we had a very good team. With the likes of Allan Wanga, Paul Were and Noah Wafula, we had a good squad plus great supplies.

“Things have changed since because of the mass exodus and I must admit that we are not the same team that we were two seasons ago.”

With only two goals to his name the entire season, the 25-year-old says many things have happened at the club and that has unsettled him together with the rest of his teammates.  

“Scoring goals is my business but doing that has been affected by many factors in and out of the pitch,” he says.

The Business Administration graduate from Technical University however says all is not lost and wants stability at the club.

“When you look at the current situation, you will realize that nothing is right. Two different offices, different coaching styles and systems to be used in the game. These factors have contributed negatively towards my progress.”

“I really have a point to prove but where is the stability?” he asks.

“Today we will have the headcoach, tomorrow another person takes charge and this makes it hard for us,” he adds.

The bullish forward is however optimistic that he can rediscover his midas touch and make push his way into the national team squad that will play in the CECAFA Senior Challenge Cup in Ethiopia.

“I earned a call up to Harambee Stars earlier this year but an injury setback cut short my dream. I am in the best shape ever and I am sure that I will make it to the CECAFA squad,” he says.
