Asike set for Wits trials



Sofapaka defender Eugene Asike is headed for trials to South Africa, where he will spend a month at top flight club Bidvest Wits.

Asike has been linked with a number of moves in the current transfer window, with Tanzanian club Azam also said to have been interested in his services as was a mooted trial in Sweden which failed to take off.

According to Sofapaka coach David Ouma, Asike will leave the country on Wednesday 23 January and spend a month down South.

“Asike will leave the country for a month for South Africa. While there, he will attend trials at Bidvest Wits who are in the country’s top flight,” he said.

“He had also booked trials in Sweden but as a club we advised him to go to Wits first and then see how it goes. If it works out, then very good, if not, he can come back here and continue while he looks elsewhere.

“The boy is young and has potential to be a good player so we will wish him the best of luck during the trials,” he said.

Ouma also insists that the player will not be missed while away.

“He is a good player and an important one for the club. Also, he has played for the national team Harambee Stars so he has developed well,” he added.

“We will miss him but at the club, we have a number of players who can fill in while he is away. Things will be just fine.”
