Norwegian second division [third tier] club Moss FK team manager Tor Thodesen, where Kenyan international keeper Arnold Origi plies his trade till the close of the last season, is unaware of the keepers' decision to retire from the international football.
According to the Thodesen, though the player hasn’t briefed him about the retirement, he’s suspecting that somebody must have hacked his face-book account and posted the information.
-When I check his Face book profile I’m not sure even if it is his. And I am quite sure he’s as serious as ever with his football and more so his commitment to the national team, Thodesen told futaa.com.
unwise decisionThodesen has gone ahead to urge the player to rescind his decision and stay with Harambee Stars.
- If it' true that he wants to quit the national team I must say that's an unwise decision. In my opinion, he needs to play for the national team in order to gain international experience and be seen by bigger clubs than in Norway. Personally, I recommend him to stay with the national team, said the manager.
Origi who’s was loaned at the close of the 2011 season to Eliteserien league top-flight side Fredrikstad is also out of contract with Moss and will be leaving during the winter transfer window.
-Unfortunately he is leaving my club Moss FK in this winter so I will not see him to ask him about this rumour, but as I said I don't believe it to be true, concluded dismayed Thodesen.
