Mathare’s Seda to make a comeback
Struggling Kenyan Premier Legue (KPL) side Mathare United has been boosted by the imminent return of midfielder Edward Seda who succumbed to a hamstring injury late last year.
In an exclusive interview with Citizen Digital, Mathare United Public Relations Officer, Samuel Gacharia, confirmed the player has been progressing well after undergoing surgery.
“Seda has been out since last year November with a hamstring injury, he has undergone surgery and is recovering well and has since been training with the team for the last month,” said Gacharia.
Mathare United have been a pale shadow of the team that won KPL in 2008, currently battling for survival in the relegation zone having accrued only 11 points from 15 matches they have played so far in the 2017 season.
With Seda set to make a comeback in the second leg of KPL, Gacharia is hopeful his return will uplift the team’s performance.
“We hope that when second leg resumes he will be ready to play. Of course we have missed him since he has been an important player in the first team for a long time,” added Gacharia.
The Francis Kimanzi-led team registered a barren draw against Zoo Kericho in their last league match and are now preparing for a home game against Sony Sugar FC on Saturday, July 15.
The creative midfielder joined the ‘Slum Boys’ from AFC Leopards in the summer of 2015.
