Ruto looking to impress at Mathare
Former Kenyan international goalkeeper Joseph Ruto is back at Mathare United after spending six months with second tier side Mahakama FC.
The experienced custodian had left at the mid-season point in 2012 but returned to kick off his second stint in the Kenya Power Charity Cup clash against Gor Mahia on Saturday at the Moi International Sports Centre (MISC) Kasarani.
The game ended in a 2-1 loss for the Slum Boys and despite the defeat, the keeper says he was pleased with his general performance in the game and looks forward to a better stay at the team.
He also could not rule out a return to the national team in the near future.
“I am happy to be back at Mathare United, of course this is my second home after all the nurturing I had when starting my career. I was welcomed well and I really wanted to start on a positive note in the game on Saturday, but unfortunately that could not happen,” he admitted.
“I was, however, pleased with my performance and I want to continue working hard for the good of the team. I am also eyeing a return to the national team in the near future and I believe with the right determination I will reach there.”
Ruto is expected to fill the void left by Martin Musalia who decamped to AFC Leopards.
