Were delighted with Tusker start
Newly signed Tusker FC striker Jesse Were is enjoying his stay at the club so far.
Were has joined the Kenyan Premier League champions from cash-strapped Mathare United on a two-year deal.
His impact has been immediate, scoring already in the brewers’ pre-season tour of Tanzania.
“I am happy here and have started well so far,” said Were. “This is a very big club with a huge reputation and a winning mentality that no one else has in Kenya. “I know that it will be a tricky stay here because of the types of competitions we are taking part in and also the competition for places.
“However, I am confident in my ability and hope that I can show it more often. “The start though has been good and to already score helps a striker like me.”
Mathare United are struggling financially, and Were is hopeful they can sort out their problems.
“It is sad to see the club in the situation it is,” said Were. “What is even worse is to see all those players leave the club. I feel bad for them because they have helped many players. “I too have reaped from my time there and I do wish them the very best. “I only want to hear of good things when it comes to Mathare, not bad,” he concluded.
Were was joint-top scorer at Mathare in the 2012 season with eight goals to his name.
