Rowland Makati: I have fully adapted

Converted right back Rowland Makati reckons his growth path as a fullback has finally hit peak.

The search for regular playtime necessitated a position change for the youngster from attacking midfielder to his current position since the start of the 2022-23 FKF Premier League season.

A season and a half later, Makati has gone on to claim 27 premier league games as a right back, or up front on the right channel, numbers that now excite the former Escalators and Vapor Sports player.

Before that, Makati had only featured in two games for Simba wa Nairobi as an attacking mid in his first two seasons at the club.

“I first had to learn the dynamics and the ropes of the new position. That has been a continuous process throughout last season and this season,”

“But now I can say that, finally, I have fully mustered what is required to play in that zone and I now have to admit that I have fully matured and adapted to that role,”

“That said, I wish to step up my performance and make more contributions for City Stars in terms of assists and goals for the interest of the team.

Thus far, Makati has featured in half of the games in the current season – 17 of 34 – clocking 863 regular time minutes having earned ten starts and eight complete games.

It’s an improvement from the ten games he earned last season.
