Wazito FC is delighted to announce the signing of Kevin Kimani, a midfielder from Mathare United.
Our new signing is primarily an attacking midfielder but he can also play as a winger.
Locally he has turned out for KCB, Tusker FC, Sofapaka and Mathare United. He has had professional stints in Belgium, Greece, South Africa, and Saudi Arabia. He is a full Kenyan international.
This is what he had to say shortly after signing his contract.
“I was supposed to join the team earlier because it was an anticipated move from a while back and finally it has happened. I am happy to be here. I am here to improve the team in my own way and I am looking forward to working with my new teammates to move the team forward,” he said
“To the fans, they should expect goals and assists from me because that is what I do best,” he added.
On his side, Coach Fred Ambani lauded Kimani’s arrival saying apart from being a good player he brings leadership into the team.
“When you have a young team, you need to throw in some experience and leadership in there. When you have Kim at the club it is a big boost because he is a natural leader who the younger players will definitely look up to”.
” He has performed well in all teams that he has played for and when young players see such a character in the team it motivates them. He is also a top professional,” he said.
He added that his goals and assists’ statistics is the other thing they looked at before bringing him on board.
“He is a very good player. Last season his goals and assists’ statistics were very good and that is another thing we looked at before sanctioning his signing. His creativity will definitely help us in the attack,” he added.
Kimani becomes our third off-season signing after Vincent Oburu who joined from AFC Leopards and Mark Otieno from Leads United.
