Good news in the Gor Mahia camp as veteran defensive midfielder Crispin Odula has finally received his International Transfer Certificate and is available to play in all tournaments. This according to club official Ronald Ngala.
“We were waiting for his International Transfer Certificate, ITC, and clearance before he gets the chance to play for us. I am glad he has been cleared and can now play for Gor Mahia.” said Ngala to goal.com
Odula has been training with the club and should thus be able to slot in seamlessly.
“Odula will now be available for selection and, who knows, if the coach deems him fit, he will play this weekend, but that is the decision left for the technical bench. He has been training with the team; I do not think he will have problems to fit in.”
As a replacement for Khalid Aucho, He will add much needed steel to the midfield and free up Francis Kahata to focus on playmaking.
He is a vastly experienced player having played in the KPL since 2006 as well as in Tanzania and in Finland. His experience will come in handy during the 2016 campaign which promises to be a tense and tight contest. Inexperienced players typically struggle to handle the pressure that comes with a tense league race. Odula will also be able to impart his experience to the younger members of the core like Wendo. Odula joined from AC Oulu of teh Finland league.
