Zoo prodigal son returns to boost coach Iswekha’s season preps

Kenyan Premier League (KPL) side Zoo FC will have goalkeeper Vincent Misikhu back in its fold for the 2019/20 season after a short stint with newly promoted side, Wazito FC.

Misikhu left Zoo FC at the start of the 2018/19 campaign in search of better prospects, leaving Martin Elungat as the first choice keeper for coach Sammy Okoth, and later Herman Iswekha.


Iswekha, the man in charge of the team, is elated at having the keeper back and is confident that together with Elungat, the goalkeeping department will get better with the competition expected.

“We have him back, which is a great boost for us because we have been somewhat short, having just one keeper playing all season. I know Vincent well, and he knows the club well too so it will not be hard integrating him back.

“With competition we all get better and that is what Vincent brings,” the coach told Soka.

More new signings

Zoo FC had a tough season in 2018/19, and the coach will hope to see better in 2019/20. He says a few more new faces are lined up in the coming few days, all aimed at sealing gaps that may have defined the team’s campaign last season.

“We definitely have more players coming. We have a few areas we saw last season that needed strengthening and this is the best time to plan. So we are going to get good young players to beef up,” he added.

The team has already seen its best player in 2018/19, Danson Chetambe leave for Bandari but the core of the team is still intact.
