Former Gor Mahia talisman George ‘Blackberry’ Odhiambo has ruled out a possibility of making a second stint at the club where he was adored.
Odhiambo was fans favorite during his short but decorated spell at Gor Mahia winning the KPL player of the year Award in 2010 as well as guiding the club to second position in the league the same year.
However, the mercurial forward admits he wants to jump-start his career but K’ogalo is not the place to realize that goal.
“I am ready to play for a smaller team where I can have my peace. I don’t want pressure that is associated with Gor Mahia fans. But I love their passion. I thank their fans for the immense support they gave me. It’s a great club that one would not wish to leave .But I believe, life must continue whether you are in a big club or not,” Odhiambo told Goal.com.
“For now what is important is to find a club where I can begin my career again but not the immense pressure associated with Gor. I am not ready for it.”
Odhiambo exited Gor Mahia in January 2011 joining Danish side Randers FC for a four and a half year deal, but it fell through when he agreed with the club on mutual basis to have his terms of engagement terminated after failing to break into the first team.
Thereafter, he joined Tanzanian league outfit Azam FC where he again failed to impress. He has been training with Nairobi City Stars with the aim of sealing a deal. Other players in City Stars’ radar are former Tusker and Harambee Stars midfielder Crispin ‘Alphy’ Olando and Congolese national Demonde Selenge.
