Blackberry settling in at City Stars



Kenyan Premier League side Nairobi City Stars has confirmed that former Kenyan international George ‘Blackberry’ Odhiambo is settling fast into their squad.

Team manager Laurence Njenga revealed that it has been an upward trend for the former Gor Mahia striker since joining the side a fortnight ago and he would soon be fully blended in.

Njenga confirmed that the player was working hard in training and is seemingly determined to make the difference amidst great demands and speculation from fans and stakeholders.

“Odhiambo is doing fine and is training very hard ahead of the season kick-off. He has managed to blend in with the players as well which is a positive sign,” he said.

The former Kenyan Premier League Player of the Year (2010) was signed up by Nairobi city Stars after an unsuccessful one-and-a-half year spell with Randers FC, that ended in April 2012.

The striker then moved to Tanzania giants Azam FC where he was also unable to command a place in the starting 11, with his stay coming to an end in August last year.

The players has since then been in search of a club and has landed at City Stars ahead of the 2013 season in the Tusker Premier League. His first assignment for City Stars could be against Chemelil Sugar on Sunday 17th February 2013, at their Hope Centre grounds.
