Kenyan champions Tusker continue to rebuild the team after resigning goalkeeper Patrick Matasi and two Tanzanians ahead of their continental matches next month.
The club confirmed it has resigned Matasi on a two year contract together with Protus Kirenga and Ibrahim Joshua from Tanzania. The duo also join on two year contracts.
Matasi who was at Ethiopian side St.George’s for the last three years will don jersey number 34.
“I am really happy to be back at Tusker and it’s a great pleasure for me. I was here for only three months then left and for me to come back it means there is something I didn’t fulfil as a player. I am here to work and help the team prosper and achieve its targets,” Matasi said.
He adds; “I come in to a great team which has achieved a lot. Tusker has won the league and qualified to represent the country in the CAF Champions League and this means a lot to me as a player. I have to work and fight to defend the badge of the club,” added the goalkeeper.
Kirenge joins Tusker from Namungo FC while Joshua comes in to Nairobi from top tier side Ken Gold FC.
“I am really pleased to have joined the team. This is another step in the right direction in my career because this is a bigger challenge in a new league. I am looking forward to the next two years at the club and my target is to do the best for the team and help them move another step. It would be amazing to win the league in my first season,” Kirenge said.
Striker Joshua who scored 21 goals in 19 games across all competitions for Ken Gold was equally elated to be joining the Champions.
“I have felt at home since the first day I arrived here and I can’t wait to get started. The people are warm and my new teammates have welcomed me in a great manner. I look forward to continuing my scoring form with the club.”
