Okoth struggling to find a new club

Former Sofapaka and Gor Mahia combative midfielder Collins Okoth is yet to find a club in Norway, a month after leaving for trials.

The player, commonly referred to as Gattuso, attended trials at several clubs in January but admits that all have been unsuccessful.

“I have tried out with many clubs over here (Norway) but unfortunately I’m yet to get signed by any,” the former Harambee Stars midfielder said.

He however feels that this is due to lack of professional football agent and believes if he had one, he would have already landed a club.

“It has been extremely hard for me to negotiate with clubs since I do not have an agent. Without an agent it’s nearly impossible to get a contract in Europe, I’m talking to an agent and I hope everything will go on well in the coming few weeks. If I’m not successful, I will then come back to Kenya. I cannot force things to work out here,” he added.

Gattuso had the opportunity to stay in the Kenyan Premier League before jetting out to Norway, but is likely to be welcomed back if he cannot make it in Europe.
