Kenyan international defender Dennis Odhiambo who plies his club trade with Thika United in the Kenyan Premier League (KPL) missed the team’s 3 – 2 win over KCB in the two sides’ encounter at the Nyayo National Stadium on Monday 20 August with injury reports.
The defender, who featured for an hour in the 5 – 0 loss to AFC Leopards a week ago after a long layoff, has however calmed fears of another long term injury after landing awkwardly in training on Thursday 16 August and twisted his knee.
-I am okay now; the injury is not as serious as earlier thought and I expect to be in training with my team mates in the afternoon. The knee is not swollen anymore and the pain is also receding well and I could feature in the next game, he told futaa.com.
The defender has played a big part in the team’s season, serving in both defensive and midfield positions scoring vital goals before he sustained a calf injury in early June.
