Olando expected to be axed



Tusker midfielder Crispin Olando says he had anticipated being axed from the team, following the arrival of the club’s head coach Robert Matano.

Olando who is one of the reported players being dropped by the side, alongside Dennis Mukaisi, Joseph Emeka, mid-season acquisition Ugandan David Nyanzi, Andrew Murunga, Isaac Otieno, Allan Katarega, Fredrick Ajuang and Charles Odette, says he had foreseen this.

“I have been out on injury for long and I knew Matano would drop me at season end. I hold no hard feeling towards him and the team too,” he said.

He also thanked the team especially for being patient with him while out with injury.

“I wish to thank the team. I had a nice time there and I will always cherish those moments. I also wish to thank them for the care they accorded me while I was injured. I believe everything that has happened is in God’s plans. It could be a blessing in disguise,” he said.

Olando also expressed his desire to resume actions as soon as possible, revealing too that he has an offer from a foreign team.

“I’m now fully healed and training personally at the gym. I look forward to resuming action as soon as possible. I have an offer from a foreign team that I don’t wish to mention at this moment. Let’s wait and see what will come my way between now and January,” Olando added.

The 24-year old midfield kingpin joined Tusker from Thika United in 2010 and has been capped six times by the national team, Harambee Stars.
