Kevin Kimani has rejoined Mathare United ahead of the upcoming Kenyan Premier League season.
Kimani penned a two-year deal with the 'Slum Boys; after he was deemed a surplus by Sofapaka. “We are glad to confirm that Kevin Kimani has rejoined the club on a two-year deal from Sofapaka,” Mathare United confirmed in a statement.
Kimani returns to Mathare for a second stint having won the Kenyan Premier League Player of the Year in yellow jersey in 2011.
This will also be the second time he will be working under Coach Francis Kimanzi: "I think the feeling is mutual, both the club and I are happy to reunite. I have already settled in because I understand the style of play. Having worked with coach Kimanzi before, it has been very easy to blend in. He knows very well what I can offer,” said Kimani.
Kimani is expected to form a three-prong attack alongside Cliff Nyakeya and Clifford Alwanga who scored 24 goals between them last season.
Mathare United are expected to kick off their 2018/19 KPL campaign against Chemelil Sugar at the Moi Sports Centre, Kasarani on Saturday.
