Bandari FC shifts training base to Nairobi

Kenya’s representatives in the CAF Confederation Cup tournament Bandari have shifted their training base to Nairobi ahead of the continental assignment and the 2016 league campaign.

The Mombasa based side defeated Nakumatt FC in the finals of the GOTV shield tournament to book a place in the Confederation cup tournament.

However, Bandari will have to play their continental matches in Nairobi since their Mbaraki pitch in Mombasa is not sanctioned by CAF.

The Dockers will take on Saint-Eloi Lupopo of the Democratic Republic of Congo in the CAF Confederation Cup preliminary round in February.

Kenyan champions Gor Mahia will represent Kenya in Africa champion’s league tournament.

Elsewhere, Former England and Manchester United defender Gary Neville says he hopes to remain Valencia coach next season after their 2-2 draw with Spanish giants Real Madrid at the Mestalla.

Madrid led when Karim Benzema finished off a great move involving Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale. Dani Parejo equalized for Valencia with a penalty.

Real Madrid had Mateo Kovacic sent off for a careless tackle, but looked set for a win when Bale headed home. However, second’s later Valencia earned a third point under Gary Neville when Paco Alcacer headed in from close range.

Valencia could have won it in injury time when substitute Alvaro Negredo was found in space at the edge of the box but he shot straight at keeper Keylor Navas.

This is the best result of Gary Neville’s spell as Valencia coach, following a Champions League defeat, two La Liga points from three matches and a Spanish Cup win against Barakaldo. In another match, visitors Villarreal converted a last minute penalty to defeat Deportivo La Coruña 2-1.
