AFTER surviving relegation threat in the 2022/23 season, KMC have set aside 1bn/- meant for squad boosting and signing quality players with potential to keep the team afloat next season.
This was announced on Friday by the club’s Information Officer Christina Mwagala, who insisted that they do not want to passé through another difficult season like the one they had during the last campaign.
“We had unbearable 2022/23 season and due to that, the management of our club has put aside 1bn/- to get quality players who will take KMC to the Promised Land next season,” she said.
Adding, Mwagala pointed out that basing on the status of the club, they are not going to sign players who have been released by their former teams but rather they will go on the market to get quality players.
“All these procedures are being done in order for us to do well in the upcoming season, we are not pleased to see our side battling to escape relegation, that is not what KMC is made up of,” she said.
However, last season, the Kinondoni based side narrowly escaped relegation wrath after producing a comeback to defeat Mbeya City 3-2 on aggregate in a Premier League two-legged playoff matches.
In the first leg at Sokoine Stadium in Mbeya, they suffered a 2-1 loss, but succeeded to reverse the deficit after winning 2-0 in the second leg clash at Uhuru Stadium in Dar es Salaam.
The results credited the incumbent coach Jamhuri Kihwelo who managed to navigate the sinking ship to safety despite encountering stormy weather.
However, in his recent interview, Kihwelo said it was up to KMC management to decide his future at the club insisting that he is ready for anything that the club bosses will conclude.
Three teams that faced premier league relegation jaws last term are Mbeya City, Polisi Tanzania and Ruvu Shooting which together will parade in the championship league next season.
