Football | Cecafa Senior Challenge Cup

Were and Omondi back in the mix



Paul Were and Kevin Omondi left for Kampala, Uganda on Tuesday night to rejoin the Harambee Stars squad that is currently participating in the Cecafa Senior Challenge Cup.

This has been confirmed by Fisa FC head coach Charles ‘Korea’ Omondi, who has been training the duo since they returned to Kenya following their dismissal from the Stars squad for indiscipline a few days back.

“I have been communicating with head coach James Nandwa frequently as he is very keen on their (Were and Omondi) day-to-day progress,” Korea said on Tuesday. “They will leave for Kampala tonight at 2200 hours via Air Uganda,” he added.

Harambee Stars head coach James Nandwa had requested the federation to allow the duo to rejoin the team should they progress to the semi-finals. The team beat Malawi by a solitary goal in the quarter-finals on Tuesday, and will now face Zanzibar in a last-four tie.

Korea also expressed optimism that the players would perform better after being given a second chance.

“They’ve realised their mistakes and are yearning to represent the country once again. I’ve been training them at our home ground, the Police Band Ground, since they arrived from Uganda and I can see it in them that they want to prove a point. They are young players and need advice and guidance,” Korea said.

“In my assessment in the training sessions I’ve had with them, they are still in good form and will do well if they are given a chance to play against Zanzibar,” he concluded.

Were and Omondi are on loan to AFC Leopards and Gor Mahia respectively from Nairobi Provincial League side Fisa FC.
