Wazito FC have announced the signing of three players, to boost extreme ends of the pitch.
Joining ranks as striker is Derrick Otanga from Sony Sugar.
Otanga who had 13 goals last season says he has set his sights on lifting the Kenya Premier League (KPL) with Wazito. “The journey is going to be difficult but lifting the trophy will be fantastic and I hope we achieve that glorious fete”, he quipped.
Otanga started his football in a team called Headquarters in Nairobi’s Pipeline before joining Naivas FC in 2017. He later moved to Sony where he played for two seasons.
He added that scoring goals is what motivates him the most. “I like the hard work Christiano Ronaldo puts on the pitch and is something I try learn from every day”, said.
He urged fans to support the players and at the end of the season, they will be a happy lot. “I am going for the golden boots”, he asserted.
Also joining the team are two goal keepers Kevin Omondi from Sony Sugar and Gad Mathew from Kariobangi Sharks.
Omondi who was the miller’s number one keeper is hoping for an injury free season so that he can always be fit to ensure the team achieves the season’s target.
He started playing competitively in 2014 with Nairobi City Stars. He likes the confidence and style of play of Spanish goal keeper Iker Casillars and Germany’s Michael Neuer.
He further urged for patience among the Wazito fraternity.
“I am really happy to be part of the Wazito family”, he added.
Gad Mathew stated that he is happy to be a Wazito player and looks forward an an exciting season ahead.
Commenting on the recruitment, Sporting Director Solomon Alubala said he is excited to secure the signatures and knows they fit well in the club’s ambitions.
