• The period between now and the weekend is too short for the players to fully recover-Gitau.
• The third leg of the Kenya Volleyball Federation league matches are set for this weekend.
Kenya Pipeline tactician Paul Gitau has said that his players need more time to rest and interact with their families after their exploits in the Africa Club Volleyball Championships in Tunisia.
Pipeline landed at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport on Wednesday morning alongside KCB after finishing as runners-up in Tunisia.
The six-time African champions, lost 3-1 in the finals against Zamaleck of Egypt. The Rose Magoi-captained side bagged bronze in last year's showpiece.
Gitau, who was dazzled by his charges' performance in the annual continental assignment said it is premature for the team to play this weekend.
The third leg of the Kenya Volleyball Federation league matches are set for this weekend.
“The period between now and the weekend is too short for the players to fully recover. The players need time to rest and also be with their families. The team will not be ready for action this weekend,” Gitau observed.
“It will not be appropriate to engage in any sporting activity immediately. After one week, I believe the players will be ready even as we plan for the future,” the coach added.
