The Kenyan Premier League is still has a few more weeks to close and in a bid to catch up with the CAF calendar, it will eat into the usual international ‘summer break’.
The result of this is players’ contracts have started running out while the league is still on and AFC Leopards are perhaps just one of the many clubs who have to worry as striker Hansel Ochieng’s two-year spell at the club comes to a close.
Ochieng, brought in from a free-firing form at Nzoia Sugar two years ago, will be free to leave soon.
Having found play-time hard to come by in the center-forward position, the youngster has been contended to just feature out wide whenever called upon by coach Patrick Aussems, and says he has tried.
‘’I have always been an out and out striker but this season, competition in the team has been high in that position and I’ve had to play in the wings. But I do wish to return back to the main role,’’ says the lad who’s been at Thika United and Sofapaka before.
Hansel, perhaps missing his incredible goal haul while at Nzoia, will be a key target especially for teams that have struggled upfront for goals. He is open to any offers.
‘’We haven’t sat down with the office as regards my contract running out and seeing as the season is going to end, I’ll be open to any potential offers from other clubs,’’ he adds.
AFC Leopards meanwhile, still seek to hunt for a much-awaited Premier League title having missed out on the CAF ticket currently being held by Tusker FC.
