Centre-back Wycliffe Omondi aka Awiko is raring to go after breaking into the Nairobi City Stars squad from the start of the 2023-24 FKF Premier League season.
The ambipedal, roped in from second-tier side Migori Youth FC in the offseason, has so far clocked six full 90-minute games since the start of the new season.
“I was in the National Super League where I featured for Migori Youth for just one season before joining City Stars,”
“I am currently enjoying myself to the fullest. Comparing the league where I came from, and the premier league, I have to say that this is a tough one; just one mistake you are punished,”
“But even then, I wish to give my best and make it count for Simba wa Nairobi.” added the soft spoken defender.
Awiko made his debut, a full one at number 5, in the season opener against Muhoroni Youth on 27 August 2023 in Kasarani Annex, and came out as the man of the match after winning 75% aerial duels, with a pass rate from the deep of over 78% according to statistics provided by Tisini.
He had nine massive clearances as City Stars went on to register a clean sheet in the game that ended 0-0.
