Tusker complete deals for Ugandan trio
Tusker FC have completed the signings of Ugandan trio Mathew Odongo, Lawrence Kasadha and Robert Achema, ushering the latest of piece business in a rigorous transfer window for the Kenyan Premier League (KPL) club.
Odongo rejoins Tusker from Kariobangi Sharks while Kasadha was signed from Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA). Achema was tapped from Western Stima FC.
The Brewers have already acquired the services of former Gor Mahia FC striker as they continue their rebuilding process having released 14 players at the close of the season.
The 2016 champions declined to renew contracts belonging to captain James Situma, his deputy Humphrey Mieno, midfielder Cersidy Lumumba, striker Allan Wanga and Ghanaian forward Stephen Owusu.
Others who were cut off include Anthony Ndolo, George Mandela, Moses Ndawula, Victor Ndinya, Luis Tera Misiko, Danson Kago, Noah Wafula, Martin Kizza and Clifford Alwanga.
Tusker who had clinched the league and Cup double in 2016 endured a trophyless season last year as Gor reclaimed their KPL crown while AFC Leopards claimed the GOtv Shield.
That sparked the dismissal of Ugandan coach George ‘Best’ Nsimbe who had been tasked the responsibility of replicating his compatriot Paul Nkata’s double double.
In his place Francis Baraza took over on interim basis before the club appointed former Sofapaka coach Sam Timbe on a two-year contract.
He will be deputized by Baraza.
