Kenyan International Midfielder Speaks After Sealing Azam Transfer
Kenyan midfielder Kenneth Muguna has broken silence just a day after joining Tanzanian side Azam FC from Kenyan champions Gor Mahia.
The 25-year-old penned down a two-year deal with a Tanzanian giant representing the country in the 2021/2022 CAF Confederation Cup.
The Chamazi-based club unveiled their new recruit on Wednesday ahead of the new season.
“Azam is delighted to confirm the signing of Kenya international winger Kenneth Muguna on a two-year contract, and he is arriving from Gor Mahia.
“Muguna is coming to add more punch in the team’s squad and especially the midfield area and the deal will see him stay at Chamazi until 2023,” read part of the statement from the club.
It added, “Muguna is among the star players in the FKF Premier League, and this season he was nominated the best player for the Shield Cup as his team Gor Mahia won the title on penalties.”
According to Muguna, his compatriot Humphrey Miano influenced his decision to join Azam FC. Miano played for the club on loan in 2013.
“When Azam approached me last year I had to talk to Mieno who was here sometime back and he advised me to take the challenge,” said Muguna.
The Tanzanian Mainland outfit has also acquired the services of midfielder Charles Zulu and striker Rodgers Kola. Another new signing is Taifa Stars defender Edward Manyama.©Standard Gazette, 2021.
