Olando enjoying time at Whitecaps

After spending a few weeks on trial with American Major League Soccer side Vancouver Whitecaps, former Tusker FC midfielder Crispin Olando says he is enjoying his time at the club and hopes to be drafted into the team.

Olando, a defensive midfielder, was recommended to Whitecaps by former Kenyan international Musa Otieno, who is currently an assistant coach at South African second tier side Santos.

The player says that he has been made feel at home by his teammates and club officials.

“I came into the team as a foreigner but the club officials and the other players have made me feel welcome, making it easy for me to settle in,” said Olando.

Of the difference in playing styles between Kenyan and American football, Olando said he is gradually adapting to the new system and that he is looking forward to a strong showing in coming days.

“The football we play in Kenya and the one that is being played in America has some slight tactical differences, but it is not something I cannot deal with. I have already started to get into the system and in a few days, I should be in a position to compete effectively,” he said.

Olando had been touted with a move to Gor Mahia in the January transfer window, after being dropped by Tusker.
