Harambee Star, 25, signed two-year contract with Ice Cream Makers after his contract with K’Ogalo ended
Kenyan international midfielder Kenneth Muguna said he would feel no pressure to perform well at his new club, Azam FC of Tanzania.
Muguna, who joined the Continental Premier League squad from Gor Mahia, has signed a two-year contract and has now confirmed his willingness to help Ice Cream Makers achieve their ambitions.
Expectations and pressure
“I am very happy to have signed my contract with Azam and in my opinion they are the best team in Tanzania and it is a great opportunity for me to come and represent the bigger team. I know the expectations are going to be high. but I’m ready to work, ” said the former Western Stima attacking midfielder as quoted by the club’s social media pages.
“The expectations are high and that’s because great teams are supposed to do better and I’ve been in this situation and therefore, I’m not under any pressure at all. I hope I will settle down and work. I came here to work. And I hope I will give my all on my own. I will do my best to make sure Azam has achieved its goals. “
Meanwhile, Gor Mahia’s former treasurer Sally Bollo praised Muguna after joining Camp Chamazi: “[Kenneth] Muguna was first presented at Azam. I would like to congratulate the captain on his new club “, she tweeted.
“He was a fantastic player who put in a lot of effort for us, and I enjoyed working with him. The sky is the limit.”
Muguna became the fourth player to be signed by the former Premier League champions after Charles Zulu, Rodgers Kola of Zambia and Tanzanian international defender Edward Manyama.
The former KF Tirana star left the Kenyan heavyweights after winning several Premier League titles with them, as well as the Shield Cup and competed in the Caf Champions League and Confederation Cup for several seasons .
At Azam, he should give them a competitive advantage in the Confederation Cup next season as well as the Premier League, where Simba has dominated the past four seasons.
Gor Mahia’s substitute head coach Sammy Omollo recently claimed they have a replacement for Muguna, although he hasn’t named specific players who he says could fill the void left for K ‘ Ogalo.
The 25-year-old has joined other Harambee Stars playing for Tanzanian teams; Farouk Shikhalo who is at Yanga SC and Joash Onyango, his then teammate in Gor Mahia – who is currently with Simba.
