Kasaya return lights up preseason training
Wycliffe Kasaya is back in training after spending three months on the sidelines due to a knee injury.
Kasaya, who has been out of action since September 2017, joined his teammates for preseason training on Tuesday at the Goan Institute grounds after recovering from a first degree meniscus tear on his left knee.
“It feels good to be back. It has not been easy with the surgery and the recovery. It has taken a lot of sacrifice to reach here. I had to train throughout the Christmas holidays so that I would be ready to join the rest in January. I thank God for this far I have come,” said Kasaya.
With our league opener against Vihiga United slated for February 4 in Mumias, Kasaya is working around the clock to hit full fitness ahead of the new season.
“I will be ready to play in two to three weeks. We have a target as a team but personally I will be fighting to be in the first 11 or the first 18.
“I want to play more matches than last season. We have a new keeper Job (Ocheing’) who is a bright prospect in this department. I am the most experienced in the team and I want to use my experience to lead the rest,” added the Kenyan international.
Kasaya will be expected to lead a youthful department that has Mark Kioko and Job Ochieng; who was promoted to the senior team this year.
