We can confirm that our-longest serving player Eric ‘Ero’ Odhiambo has retired from professional football and will now join the club’s management team.

Ero has been with Wazito FC since December 2012 and played a key role in the team’s rise from the Provincial League to the Kenyan Premier League.

The midfielder has now called it a day and like David Oswe, he has been redeployed within the club.
