Odera returns

Ezekiel Odera returns to City Stars

Former KCB, Gor Mahia, Thika United, Ushuru (KRA), Sofapaka and AFC Leopards sharpshooter Ezekiel Omulo Odera has recoiled back to National Super League (NSL) side Nairobi City Stars on a two-and-a-half year deal.

This comes after his year-long loan deal with KCB, that coincided with the last mile of his contract with AFC Leopards, lapsed at the close of year 2019.

Odera was at City Stars in 2016 and 2017 leading the team with crucial goals to seventh- placed finishes on both occasions.

He was snapped up by Leopards for the 2018 season where he lasted a year before rejoining the bankers, for a fourth stint, for 2019.

He becomes the fourth signing in the 2020 January transfer window after midfielder Peter Opiyo, utility forward Azizi Okaka and keeper Jacob Osano.

In on-boarding Odera head coach Sanjn Alagic adds to his pot of out-and-out strikers that includes Gambian Ebrima Sanneh, teenager Vincent Jamaica Otieno and bullish Davis Amuyunzu Agesa.

Odera dropped his aim after making a return to a team he finds has since been renamed to Simba wa Nairobi;

“The team is focused with a good coach and I am glad they have given me another chance to work with them,”

“My aim is to help the team ascend to the Kenyan Premier League and this I’d say will be a great achievement.”

Odera joined the team upon resumption of training on 4 January and is in line for his first game in two years when Simba wa Nairobi hosts Vihiga Bullets at Camp Toyoyo, Jericho on Saturday 18 January 2020 starting 3pm.
