Defender Omar back at Bandari
Former Kenya and Sofapaka defender Abdulatif Omar has re-signed for newly promoted coastal side Bandari FC.
Omar, who was recently released by the former Kenyan Premier League champions, played for Bandari before moving on to Thika United FC earlier in his career.
The left-back endured a challenging time at Sofapaka, spending two seasons on the sidelines with a knee injury that twice required surgery. He made one outing on the bench in the 2012 season before parting ways with the Nairobi-based outfit.
Omar has now been given a one-year contract with Bandari – much to his obvious delight. “I am officially a Bandari FC player as from today (Thursday),” said Omar.
“I am so happy that after the nightmare with the injury in the last two seasons I have sealed this deal. The club gave me a contract for one year and to me that is just good. I will prove my worth.
“There are great players here and the motivation is also high so I expect the coming season to be a revelatory one. I know if I avoid any injuries I will be back to my best and a place in the national team is still within my reach,” he added.
Bandari will be making a return to the top flight after a season out.
