Stalwart Imbalambala back at United
Martin Imbalambla is back at Vihiga United barely two months after he was suspended on disciplinary grounds.
The lanky Imbalambala rejoined the team on Friday after eight weeks out since he fell out with the team’s management and technical bench over unbecoming behaviour.
In an interview with Citizen Digital, the former AFC Leopards skipper said that he is motivated and looking forward to a new season with his team- mates.
“I will work extra hard to make sure we maintain our status in the KPL,” the one-time Harambee Stars trialist said, alluding to Vihiga’s promotion to the top-tier league.
With his return, the versatile midfielder now has his work clearly cut out as he aims to win the heart and soul of his coach Edward Manoah who has expressed delight at his return.
“It’s not a sympathy we are doing but he is really a good player. We are now in top flight league and buying a new player is tricky. We have recalled him as he is a senior player. He strikes a good bond with his colleagues and he will be invaluable to the team,” Manoah, who inked a new deal with the club last week, said.
Manoah’s boys make their KPL debut on February 3 against Mathare United at the Bukhungu Stadium in Kakamega and will be aiming for a fairytale run in the top division after bagging the National Super League title in sweeping fashion last term.
