Tololwa nears Tusker switch
Kenya and Mathare United forward Andrew Tololwa could find himself playing for Tusker Premier League champions Tusker FC in the 2013 season.
The player and the club have been in negotiations over the past week, as they work towards a deal that suits both parties.
Tololwa confirmed the news, saying it was his wish to move to Tusker. The Harambee Stars man considers the club the best in the country, and feels he can not afford to pass up the opportunity to join them.
“We already agreed on personal terms and now the deal is almost done. Tusker is the best club over here and any player would wish to play for the club and therefore I cannot let the opportunity slip,” Tololwa said.
The former Pumwani United (Nairobi County League) striker had a good season with Mathare and was the club’s joint-second best scorer. He netted eight goals to help Mathare finish eighth on the 16-team table with 41 points from 30 matches.
Tololwa, however, says he has yet to reach his potential, and he is optimistic of doing even better next campaign.
“I had a good season but I was not even at my best. I hope to perform even better and score more goals in 2013,” he said.
