“It will be a Berlin Wall when the day comes,” Those are the words of center back Tedian Atuto Esilaba who joined City Stars in the January transfer window from Super League side Fortune Sacco on the day he will get to play with Shitu (Salim Abdalla) in the City Stars defense.
The mean defender, a captain while at Fortune Sacco, is relishing that chance of playing alongside Shitu who has been at the heart of City Stars back line with his partner Wycliffe Otieno.
Despite being an unbreakable pairing, Teddy is looking forward to the day he will get his chance; “I am really looking forward to that day. The chemistry between me and Shitu is on another level. We really understand each other,”
“Then the qualities we share also says it all; we are both ball players on one v one situations, then we are both scoring defenders,”
“We played together back in the days when I was on trials at ingwe (AFC Leopards). We partnered in all friendly matches with him which is the case when we play games in the mtaa.” added Teddy
Prior to arriving at Fortune Sacco, Tedian was at Bidco United, a club he joined from Vihiga United.
