Wanga pens one year contract with Azam FC

Azam have revealed through their official website that they have captured the Harambee Stars striker on a one year contract after impressing coach

Former AFC Leopards striker Allan Wanga has finally completed his much anticipated move to Tanzanian club Azam FC.

Azam on Tuesday revealed through their official website that they had captured the Harambee Stars striker on a one year deal after impressing coach Stewart Hall.

“Wanga has finally joined Azam on a one year deal after impressing our coach Stewart Hall,” revealed the statement. “The capture  of Wanga now completes our quota for foreign players and we are now set to battle in all fronts for trophies this season.”

Speaking to Goal after penning the deal, Wanga said he was looking forward to help Azam win trophies. “I know several Kenyan players have had difficulties playing in Tanzanian league. This is one thing I want to defeat. I want to perform for Azam because the coach has told me I am on his plans for the season.

“There is a good atmosphere here in Tanzania than in Sudan. I have already trained with the team and the playing unit is very welcoming. Everybody here is friendly and that will boost my performance. I know several players have failed here but that will not stop me from performing my duties.”

Wanga also revealed that he hopes to settle in well into Tanzanian life now that he had signed for the club. “I had a lot of difficulties living in Sudan and that was one of the reasons I refused to extend my stay at El-Merreikh.

“I hope here in Tanzania things will be better and I will adopt as quickly as possible and get playing time to showcase my ability. Life in Sudan was very difficult for foreign players because the place is very hot and the environment not friendly at all. I am happy to have found a new home here at Azam.”

Wanga will wear jersey number nine (9).
