They say everything good must come to an end and today one of our longest-serving players, David ‘Tiote’ Oswe has retired from competitive football and will now take up a management role in the team.
Oswe has been with the club for the last seven years and played a big role in helping the team rise to Kenya’s top tier league, the Kenyan Premier League. He was the team captain when we first earned a promotion to KPL in 2017.
The no-nonsense defensive midfielder will henceforth serve as the assistant team manager, he will work under club legend and ex-captain, Dan Odhiambo
“Oswe has been a loyal servant of the club for many years and we have decided to give him a management role. At Wazito football club we reward loyalty and commitment. His redeployment after retirement elaborates what we stand for as a club,” CEO Dennis Gicheru said.
‘I wish him all the best in his new role,” he added.
On his part, the former captain said he is looking forward to his new career path.
“My journey with Wazito FC has been an exciting one. We have experienced both bad and good times, we won and lost as a team. I now feel that time is ripe for me to take a break from competitive football. It’s a bitter-sweet feeling but I am excited by what the future holds for this great club,” Oswe stated.
He went on to thank the club management for entrusting him with a new role and promised to give his best.
“I want to thank the club president Mr. Ricardo Badoer and CEO Dennis Gicheru for entrusting me with this new role.
