George Odiwour may have only played once for Kakamega Homeboyz Football Club last season but has a different story to tell this time round- he has only missed once.
Starting the 2018-19 campaign with coach Paul Nkata, Odiwour would feature consistently for the Kakamega side in a near perfect start to the campaign that would be marred by controversies later on. He would still remain consistent with the entry of former Kenyan International Nicholas Muyoti and now- reflecting on the season, attributes it all to hard work.
”I do a lot of personal training to add onto what we are offered by the coaches, and even there, I always strive to add something extra,” he tell Soka.
Odiwuor missed Homeboyz’s 3-2 loss in Nairobi but has remained a consistent figure in the side’s central defense- his partnership revolving around Sosthenes Idah, Kennedy Onyango and youngster John Otieno.
After coach Muyoti’s entry, Homeboyz recorded a string of impressive results, some seeing them go as high as fourth on the table standings. The defender reveals a conducive environment between the coach and the playing unit.
”There is a lot of teamwork now, we combine well in our various departments and the chemistry is just perfect,” he adds.
He says they now want to finish on a high, against Sofapaka in Mombasa where they hope their captain Allan Wanga can score two goals and seal the Golden Boot.
”We want Wanga to score two goals today and we will help him do that. A win against Sofapaka will be a great ending to the season,” concludes the 26-year-old.
Homeboyz plays Sofapaka at the Mbaraki Sports Club in their last league fixture and Allan Wanga leads the top scorers’ charts with 18 goals, one more than Umaru Kasumba who plays for Sofapaka. The match kicks-off at 2 pm.
