Midfielder of the Year star Anthony Akumu rules out a move to local team

The holding midfielder says he does not intend to leave K'ogallo soon and attributes his steadfast growth to Croatian coach Zdravko Logarusic

Gor Mahia's and Kenya's Premier League (KPL) midfielder of the Year Anthony "Teddy" Akumu has ruled out a move to a local side saying he will only consider overseas offers.

The holding midfielder who has grown in stature becoming one of the best defensive midfielders in the country added that he is committed to Gor Mahia and if he would make a club change, it will have to be in a foreign league.

“I am a Gor player and will not join any other local club. I am taking one step at a time and want to grow. If i get suitors from abroad I can give it a consideration but not locally,” Akumu told Goal.com.

Akumu at the same attributed his growth to his head coach Zdravko Logarusic saying he has brought the best out of him.

“I owe everything to the coach. When he came, he told me that I had the potential and he wanted me to give my best. The confidence, the trust and his tactics has made me what I am today.”

Known for his ball winning tackles, Akumu has been a useful cover for K'ogalo's defense in the ended season, something that has caught the eye of James Nandwa who has drafted him into the Harambee Stars squad for Cecafa.
