Nyakan eager to hit scoring form
As curtains came down on the June transfer window, Mathare United moved with speed to complete the capture of Posta Rangers forward Brian Nyakan on a one and a half year loan deal.
Nyakan, 22, was signed on transfer deadline day to become the fifth inbound transfer at the club during the midseason window after Samuel Olwande, Victor Ashinga, Frank Liyayi and Ronald Reagan.
Having being handed a janitorial role at his parent club, Nyakan comes to the club in search of playing time as well as discover the form that saw him star for Sofapaka in the first leg of the 2016 season.
“The experience in training has been great. I am adapting well to the style of play here. My job as a striker is to score goals and that is what I have been working on. I don’t have a specific target in terms of goals but I want to go back to my best,” said Nyakan.
It was put to him that he joins a crowded department that also has Chris Ochieng, Ronald Reagan, Elijah Mwanzia and Derrick Onyango who already has a goal to his name this season. His reply took in the competition from his teammates as well as the importance of teamwork in improving the team’s ranking.
“I am happy to be here at Mathare United. The expectation surrounding my arrival is really high. The competition is really good and I have to work hard for my place. I am looking forward to working together with my teammates and help the team climb up the log,” added Nyakan.
The former Kitengela Shooters forward will don jersey 19 and it is intriguing to see whether he will be part of the squad that will take on Sony Sugar in a Round 16 league match slated for Saturday 15 July.
