Beijing Renhe forward Ayub Masika Timbe has heaped praise on new
Harambee Stars head coach Francis Kimanzi.

According to Timbe 27, Kimanzi has proven his tactical mastermind that
led to a 1-1 draw against neighbors Uganda despite a poor show in the
second half of the game.

The speedy winger has applauded the former Mathare United coach ideas
to players during the just concluded September international break.

“So far he has done well for the one week I have been with him, he is
humble, visionary,has good training methods and he is also a
respectable guy”,Timbe told People Daily Sport.

The former KRC Genk and Lierse prodigy, who wowed fans with his
magical display, says the playing unit gave their best during the
Uganda Cranes friendly at Kasarani Stadium and he is looking forward
to better things with coach Kimanzi.

Despite what was seen as under performance by Harambee Stars at the
African Cup of Nations in Egypt,Timbe says they picked good lessons
from Cairo and it was cheerful for them after registering Kenya’s
first win at the continental showpiece at the expense of Tanzania.

“For sure the team tried its level best for the country. Reaching the
final stage was equally a big step for us. We were the first to get a
win for Kenya at AFCON and to me that was a successful outing.”

Timbe who is capped more than 15 times since his international debut
against South Africa in 2012, is optimistic that Kenya will get
another AFCON qualification for the 2021 tournament to be staged in

Harambee Stars will begin their search for the final slot in November
away to record Champions Egypt. Kenya will also face Claude Le Roy’s
Togo and Comoros in the qualifying campaign.
