Wazito FC left-back Reuben Onsando may miss the first-half of the 2018 Kenyan Premier League season.
The defender underwent a successful knee surgery last June and was expected to return to action in January, but that is most likely not to happen after Wazito omitted Onsando's name in the final list of the 2018 squad.
Onsando tore the lateral collateral ligaments and sprained the anterior cruciate ligaments that kept him out of the second leg of the National Super League last season.
The defender confirmed that he will have to sit out a little longer:
“I'm still out mate. I'm yet to recover fully,” Onsando confirmed in a tweet.
Wazito are gearing up for a maiden KPL season with a match against Sony Sugar this weekend.
Wazito FC full squad:
Goalkeepers: Philip Odhiambo, Eric Ogwade, Steve Njunge, Edwin Mukolwe; Defenders: Marvin Onyango, Emmanuel Tienan, Athman Buki, Brian Odhiambo, Luis Tumba, Mark Odhiambo, Oliver Kilonzo, Dan Owino, Dominic Oyando, Ricky Obiero; Midfielders: David Oswe, Samson Ndegwa, Patient Lukige, Eric Odhiambo, Haron Nyakha, Moses Otieno, Salim Akatha, George Owiti, Chris Opondo, Joakim Omollo; Strikers: Francis Ocholla, Ibrahim Mao, Joe Waithira, Kenneth Wendo, Kennedy Ayako, Pistone Mutamba.
