Kahata leaves Thika United for Eurpoean stint

21 January 2014, 11:53

Nairobi - Harambee Stars midfielder Francis Kahata has left Kenyan Premier League club Thika United for a professional stint in Albania.

The player, widely regarded as one of the best talents to come out of the Kenyan game in recent times has penned a six month deal with top tier club FK Tirana.

Tirana are not new to Kenyan players, with AFC Leopards defender James Situma also having played for the club in the past.

Thika head coach John Kamau confirmed the news and admitted it was a huge blow to the club's 2014 Kenyan Premier League title aspirations.

" It is a huge blow to lose Francis. He is one of the best players in Kenyan football. We will miss him badly, he said.

" The deal is good news for him and Kenyan football and I do indeed hope that he will do well out there and represent us well, he added.

Kahata's departure comes after Clifton Miheso, another top player for the club left for Sofapaka, a sure blow to the club's title ambitions.

" It is a blow, but we will survive. We always have.
