NAIROBI, Kenya-Andrew Murunga is itching to get down to business after he was unveiled as Vihiga United player on Monday.
The former Kakamega Homeboyz FC man said the opportunity to work under coach Edward Manoah was something he could not turn down.
The striker was one of the 11 players that were unveiled by the Kenyan Premier League (KPL) debutantes.
“I like the vision of coach Manoah and the support he is getting from the Vihiga County Government. Those are some of the things I considered before deciding my future,” said Murunga.
“Basically we want to start well and fight until the end to retain our status as a KPL team,” he added.
The immediate former Ushuru FC forward put pen to paper on a three-year contract and he joins striker Michael Isabwa (Kariobangi Sharks FC), goalkeepers Godfrey Oputi (Palos FC) and Ali Kesi (Homeboyz) as some of the new signings unveiled by the club.
Ugandan defender Jonathan Mugabi was also roped in from Sofapaka FC to replace Gideon Abucheri who was among 12 players that were released earlier in the month.
Others are midfielder Victor Ayugi formerly of KCB, Vincent Wanda from Palos, fullback Benjamin Tera from FC Talanta and youngster Wycliffe Kagesi from Chavakali High School.
