Combative midfielder David Oswe has announced his retirement from competitive football. The long-serving Wazito FC man will now take up a management role at the Aidos Kunen sponsored side.

Having been with the side for seven years, Oswe or ‘Tiote’ as he is also known in the football circles, has seen it all with the club. He played a major role in helping the team gain Premier League status and was team captain when Wazito first earned a promotion to the KPL in 2017.

He now takes up a role as the assistant team manager and will work under another Wazito FC ex-captain and legend, David Odhiambo.

Wazito CEO Dennis Gicheru wished Oswe well in his new role and highlighted his importance to the side.

“Oswe has been a loyal servant of the club for many years and we have decided to give him a management role. At Wazito football club we reward loyalty and commitment. His redeployment after retirement elaborates what we stand for as a club,” said Dennis Gicheru.

Oswe on the other hand stated that he is excited for what the future holds for Wazito. He thanked the club’s management for trusting and believing in him to help steer the team forward in other roles.

“My journey with Wazito FC has been an exciting one. We have experienced both bad and good times, we won and lost as a team. I now feel that time is ripe for me to take a break from competitive football. It’s a bitter-sweet feeling but I am excited by what the future holds for this great club,” Oswe stated.

“I want to thank the club president Mr. Ricardo Badoer and CEO Dennis Gicheru for entrusting me with this new role. I understand the club’s values and culture and I promise to give my absolute best and with loyalty as I’ve done it since 2013. I will play my role well for the betterment of the team, as always we say Wazito for life” he added.
