Michael Kamau, the former Fulham Academy player and Brentford Development defender is scheduled to attend AFC Leopards training sessions after the team’s Tusker Premier League (TPL) match against Nairobi City Stars on Sunday 5 May.
The player had expressed interest in joining either AFC Leopards or Gor Mahia but just on a short term deal as he is in the country for six months and the AFC Leopards coach Luc Eymael says he wants to assess him.
The Belgian Coach, speaking to futaa.com, admitted the club has a problem in the left back position since former Tanzanian international Idrissa Rajab is away on compassionate leave and added that if the 20 –year old impresses he might consider giving him a chance for the second half of the season.
-I will have him in training next week; the fact that he has played for Fulham youth team means he has some idea in the game but it is only normal that I take him in training then together with my team of coaches we get to look at him. That is the procedure.
-If we feel he is good enough we will give him a chance for the second leg because in the left back position we have a big problem. Abbas is good enough to fit in but has just come back from injury so we have to take the necessary caution.
-I have also been using Abich there but he is right footed which gives him some difficulty and Rajab may not be coming back soon – he has a big problem back at home so it is crucial that we find a replacement, he said.
AFC Leopards will commence training on Tuesday 7 May after their weekend game against City Stars.
