Chula Chula aim to avoid relegation

Eeshoke Chula Chula’s head coach, John Sikerete, says he is happy with the team’s progress this season, but their primary goal is to perform well in the league to avoid being relegated.

The Debmarine Namibia Premiership team, based in Ohangwena, is placed sixth on the 16-team log standings with 29 points.

In an interview with Nampa, Sikerete stated that, as a newcomer to the Premier League, his team has performed exceptionally well, and they aim to continue collecting points in the remaining games of the season.

“Our goal for this season was simply to avoid relegation, and we have performed well in that regard, currently sitting in sixth place on the league standings. However, we could still slip down the table if we fail to win our remaining 11 games this season,” Sikerete said.

The coach added that as the league draws to a close, teams will compete to achieve better positions on the log. Therefore, they aim to perform to the best of their abilities.

“All our players are in the squad, including those who were previously injured. As a team, we have not set any specific targets aside from avoiding relegation, which seems unlikely. However, if we finish higher than our current position, that would be a bonus for us as newcomers to the Premier League,” he said.

Khomas NamPol leads the log standings with 41 points. African Stars, the defending champions, are second on the log with 40 points after 19 matches played by both teams.

FC Ongos have completed 18 matches this season and are in third place on the log with 39 points. Mighty Gunners and Blue Waters are in fourth and fifth place, respectively, with 29 points each.

Meanwhile, the Otjiwarongo-based Life Fighters are at the bottom of the log, standing at 11 points. Katutura-based Orlando Pirates are 15th with 14 points, whereas Civics, based in Khomasdal, are 14th with 17 points.
