Kenyan Under 20 international goalkeeper Brian Bwire has been out for the past few weeks due to injury. The young custodian injured his hip during the CECAFA Under 20 championships in Uganda in which he inspired Kenya to a second-place finish and also grabbed the golden glove award.
As he continues with his rehabilitation, his fellow goalies are wishing him the best.
“We are all sad that Bwire isn’t with us now. Its been two weeks of training without him. He is such a lively character and there is never a dull moment when he is around. We wish him the best recovery. We hope to see him back soon,” said Oyande who joined the Sharks this season.
His counterpart John Oyemba, a Kenyan International also had warm words for Bwire;
“I have seen Bwire make his debut for us when he was still in his final year at high school. He has grown in leaps and bounds and it has earned him a lot of respect and admiration. He is a top keeper. He offers us good competition in the goalkeeping department and his absence leaves a huge gap for us.”
Having had a long time on the sidelines in the past Oyemba knows the right words to pass on to his compatriot.
“When you are out, you normally want to see your teammates wish you well, as well as your coach and the entire management at the club. I was once there, for a long period and I know how important that is. Bwire will be back soon, and I am glad that everyone is offering him the support and love just like they did with me. Luckily his is a short-term one and we expect him back soon”
