Olando jets out to Canada



Former Kenyan international midfielder Crispine Olando has left the country for a stint with Canadian side Vancouver White Caps, which takes part in the MLS in the United States of America.

The midfielder was unattached after being released among other players by Kenyan Premier League champions Tusker FC at the end of a troubled 2012 season for the player when he had to spend a long period on the sidelines with a knee ligament injury.

According to a source close to the midfielder who requested anonymity, the midfielder left at 21:00 on Thursday for Canada, where he will be for the next six months after one of the coaches at the MLS side was impressed after watching the player’s video in a past game against Gor Mahia.

“Alphy left (on Thursday). He called me just before boarding at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport as he left for Canada where he was awarded a visa for the next six months. While there he will be with MLS side Vancouver White Caps,” the source said.

“One of the coaches at the team got impressed after watching a video of the player and also coming around to watch him play in the KPL. Musa Otieno was instrumental in the move as he is well known to the coach and I have also heard that he will be Alphy’s agent.”

Olando will be the second Kenyan player at the MLS after Lawrence Olum made his mark earlier with Sporting Kansas City.
