Ex-Gor Mahia custodian Wycliffe Kasaya is eying more playing time at Sony Sugar after signing a two year deal with the club on Friday.
Kasaya confirmed to Goal.com that he had finally agreed on personal terms and inked a two year deal to feature for the sugar millers in the 2013 season. “I needed a club urgently after leaving Gor Mahia and am very happy that Sony has given me the opportunity to return to active football.”
“I have penned a two year contract and am now looking forward to regular action again.” Sony coach Sammy “Pamzo” Omollo confirmed the capture of the goalkeeper.
“Yes…we have added Kasaya to our playing unit and I think we are now done with the transfer window. We want to focus on our pre-season preparations before the league kicks-off.”
Meanwhile, after failing in his bid to capture a civic seat in the just concluded party nominations former Sony Zedekiah Otieno says he is ready to get back into coaching.
Otieno was hoping to clinch an Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) ticket during primaries held last week but he failed meaning he cannot contest for the county representative ticket.
The coach now says he would take up any interesting offers that come his way before the new season kicks off. “I am available and will certainly take up any offer that comes up. In the meantime I will take a break and observe what is going on.”
The coach resigned from Sony Sugar after the just concluded season when the political bug hit him. Before handling Sony, Otieno was previously head coach at Gor Mahia and has also handled national team Harambee Stars on an interim basis.
He is just but one of the many sports personalities who have declared interest in capturing political seats during the March 4 General Elections. Two Football Kenya Federation (FKF) officials Robert Asembo and Tom Alila will vie for parliamentary seats in Nairobi.
