Former Thika United midfielder Francis Kahata has rejoined Albanian club KF Tirana ahead of on-going season.
Accroding to parajsa.com/sport, Kahata arrived in Albanian on Monday and started training with the team on Tuesday.
A statement in the website read in part, “Kenyan midfielder (Francis Kahata) arrived in the capital on Monday and today (Tuesday) joined the group in training. Kahata showed technical staff that is trained regularly in Kenya and is ready to take the same load with the team.
The statement continued, “The return of Kahata has been a very good move for KF Tirana. President Refik Halili has enabled the reinforcement that applies more to the white and blue team. A year ago Kahata was part of the team that conducted exceptional performance in second half of the season.”
Kahata is remembered to have scored a memorable goal when Kenya drew 1-1 with Nigeria’s Super Eagles away in Calabar in a World Cup qualifier. Kahata struck from a free-kick to beat goalkeeper Vincent Enyeama all the way.
Speaking to Goal after terminating contract with KF Tirana last September, Kahata said, "I had valid reasons to leave KF Tirana. They did not meet part of their agreement and could not take it. I am searching for a club and in the meantime keeping fit so I am not really worried about a dip in form.”
