Rising star Andrew Malisero says he is delighted to have joined Kenyan Premier League champions Gor Mahia, having penned a three-year-deal last week.
The 17-year-old Malawian attacker joins from South African third-tier club African Warriors and is regarded as one of the most exciting young talents on the continent today.
Malisero is set to become the first Malawian to player in Kenya’s top flight, with his journey to Gor Mahia started off by Flames legend Peter Mponda, who spotted the player as a 12-year-old and recruited him for the Surestream Academy.
“It is an honour for me to be able to play for this amazing club,” Malisero is quoted by Nation Sport.
“I thank God and the club for giving me the opportunity. I am looking forward to working my hardest to help the club retain the league title and hopefully do well continentally.
“I follow Kenyan football very much and it was an unbelievable feeling that they considered me to be a part of the team. I am very grateful and will make use of this great opportunity. The Kenyan Premier League is a very competitive league with quality players and I am looking forward to experiencing it all.
“I am a positive person who loves the game and who expresses himself with the ball at his feet. I’m looking forward to entertaining Kenyan football fans. I love playing as an attacker, as a number 9 or 10, but can adapt to any other position.”
