FKF Premier League side Wazito FC have confirmed the signing of midfielder Kevin Kimani from Mathare United.
Kimani joins Wazito with plenty of experience from the local league having played for top guns like KCB, Tusker and Sofapaka FC. He has also had stints in Belgium, Greece, South Africa, and Saudi Arabia.
Upon putting pen to paper, Kimani revealed that his move to the Fred Ambani led side has always been on the cards.
“I was supposed to join the team earlier because it was an anticipated move from a while back and finally it has happened. I am happy to be here. I am here to improve the team in my own way and I am looking forward to working with my new teammates to move the team forward,” he said
“To the fans, they should expect goals and assists from me because that is what I do best,” he added.
Coach Ambani hailed Kimani as a leader who will add greatness to his side. With Wazito looking to get the goals coming next season, Ambani believes that Kimani has all that it takes to help his side get them with his top level of creativity on the pitch.
“When you have a young team, you need to throw in some experience and leadership in there. When you have Kim at the club it is a big boost because he is a natural leader who the younger players will definitely look up to”.
” He has performed well in all teams that he has played for and when young players see such a character in the team it motivates them. He is also a top professional”.
“He is a very good player. Last season his goals and assists’ statistics were very good and that is another thing we looked at before sanctioning his signing. His creativity will definitely help us in the attack,” he added.
Kimani becomes the third confirmed new signing at Wazito after that of Vincent Oburu and Mark Otieno who joined from AFC Leopards and Leads United respectively.
