Kamau backs Odera to shine



Thika United coach John Kamau has backed Ezekiel Odera to fill the void left by the departure of Moses Arita.

Arita has been signed up by Tusker Premier League champions Tusker FC for the coming season and has left a huge gap in the Thika strike force. Odera, though, was recruited from KCB due to his potential to score goals.

Kamau believes Odera has what it takes to shine and has backed the former Gor Mahia striker to get back to his best.

“I am sad to lose Arita who is a top striker,” admitted Kamau. “He has also been part of this Thika side for the last couple of years and is a part of our family.

“That does not mean that we will stand in his way if he decides to leave and it has happened. “We wish him all the very best at Tusker.”

With Odera in though, Kamau has less reason to worry about finding goals next season.

“I am happy to have a striker like Odera around. He will add goals as he is a genuine threat going forward and a person of high potential. I brought him here because he will aid us and I am confident he will do so. You do not go too far to search for a striker if you have one who can score goals like Odera,” he added.

Odera scored just three goals for KCB in the 2012 season although he has hit double figures in the league before, for the bankers in the 2010 campaign.
