Kakamega Homeboyz have welcomed back Shami Kibwana from a brief shoulder injury that occurred during the recent break that lasted well over a month. Shami, a midfield cog in Coach Nicholas Muyoti’s team, was instrumental for the team just before the break, as Homeboyz rose from a poor start to the 2020/21 BetKing Premier League season.
The midfielder suffered a shoulder dislocation when Homeboyz engaged Vihiga Bullets last month, but says he’s well now.
”I had to lay off for a while because of the injury but I’m back in training now. It was well attended to the moment it happened and that’s why I’ve been able to return soon,” says Shami.
”I want to be able to help my team whenever called upon. We haven’t had a great season so far but we had started getting some momentum before the break. I am sure we will regain our form once again.”
Homeboyz played Ghanaian import Stephen Opoku in his place when they traveled to Kariobangi Sharks, a match they lost 1-0 as football returned. The club has also been without Moses Mudavadi who suffered an ankle sprain before the break. He too is back in training and coach Muyoti jubilates.
”The two have been instrumental in the first leg and seeing them back means a lot to the team’s morale. It’s good when you have plenty of good options to pick from,” say the coach.
Shami has been involved in two goals so far in the season while Mudavadi is on three goals and three assists for the season. They host Western Stima on Saturday 22 in Bukhungu.
