Coach John Kamau has revealed to Goal that Aswani, who was kicked out weeks ago for absconding training, has been recalled to bolster team's striking forceThika United coach John Kamau says he will give experienced striker Kepha Aswani a second chance in the team after initially saying that he had booted the hit man for absconding training without reason.
Aswani was in action over the weekend as Thika were held to a barren draw by KCB in a match Kamau said all the players under performed.
“As a parent, you can never throw away your child. Aswani is my player and I would never feel good seeing him suffer. Initially he was quoted in a section of the media as saying that there was a team which was seeking for his services and that was why he was not in training,” Kamau told Goal.
“We decided to let him go so that he could have enough time to process the transfer which apparently never materialized after the window closed.”
Aswani moved back to Thika after his six month loan stint at Al Nasr ended in June. Kamau has now challenged the player to work on his fitness levels as he seeks to rediscover his form.
“We did not have a very good match against KCB on Saturday. The only positive from the match is the improvement in my goalkeeping department but I have a lot to worry about concerning the striking force. I need to work on that and I am hopeful we will improve.”
