Kenyan Curtis Osano, who is signed to English
League Two side AFC Wimbledon has expressed gratitude to his former manager
Terry Brown for kick-starting his career at the club.
The 25 year old started off at the Reading's youth academy before he was let go in 2008 and found himself clubless. This forced him to do odd jobs in a bid to make ends meet.
-I had to grab a job to pay the bills so I took a job working at a recycling centre, Osano told the club’s official website.
-I used to come back from work stinking of all kinds of stuff from the rubbish tip, but I had to make ends meet, he admitted.
Wimbledon’s former boss Terry Brown however realized his potential while playing for Luton in the League play-off final stages and gave him a chance in the club.
-Brown had watched the play-off final and said that a player who could get up and down the right was just what he wanted. I owe Terry a hell of a lot and I will always be grateful to him.
Osano is yet to return to full form, following a recent ankle injury that has restricted him to just four matches this season.
He [Osano] joined Wimbledon in May 2012, from the Conference National League team Luton Town.
