Duncan Ochieng out for three months

18 March 2014, 11:24 Nechesa Chemoi

Nairobi - Kenya Premier League side Sofapaka goalkeeper Duncan Ochieng has been ruled out for three months following a fracture he sustained in the 0-0 draw with AFC Leopards in Machakos over the weekend.

Ochieng, who is also the club’s captain, had a successful surgery on Monday and the doctors said he needed time for the injury to heal.

“The surgery was done at the Nairobi Hospital in the morning on the day and the goalkeeper is expected to be out for about three months as he heals,” read part of a statement posted on the club’s website on Monday.

He was visited by the team’s coach Sam Timbe, team manager Amenipa Bigisho, club secretary general Emmanuel Kayoyi as well as AFC Leopards’ keeper Wycliffe Kasaya and defender Anthony Modoh Kimani after the surgery.

“In his absence goalkeepers Barnabas Tiema and David Okello will be up for selection in the role,” the club said.

According to the club, they have been considering the option of signing an emergency goalkeeper but as it has emerged, the KPL does not have that provision, as confirmed by CEO Jack Oguda and so the team will have to make do with the two keepers for time being.

“Oguda however noted that in the event that another keeper gets injured, the KPL governing council will be convened to try and get a clearance for the signing of an extra keeper on the basis of emergency,” the club added in the statement.
