Gabonese footballer stranded in Kenya

A Gabonese footballer has appealed to any professional football team in Kenya to offer him a contract.

The player – Muco Rodriguez Desy – says he has lost all his identification documents when he arrived in Nairobi a fortnight ago.

“I arrived in Kenya two weeks ago. At the Airport, a taxi man asked me to pay Sh 1300 so that he can transport me to town, but somewhere in between he disappeared with all my luggage including my passport,” the player told Nairobi News on Wednesday at Nation Centre.

“Now am stranded because I also don’t have the contact of the Ugandan agent who had invited me to try out with a Kenyan Premier League club,” the player added.


The player’s potential employer should however brace for a longer period in registering this player in local competitions in the absence of his identification documents.

The player says he is an attacking midfielder who is comfortable on either wing.

“I love attacking play, and am at my best when linking midfield to attack by spraying through balls to the speedy forwards. The Kenyan Premier League will bring the best out of me because of its physical nature,” Rodruguez  said.

The 23 year old, whose mother is from Burundi, says he is a product of the Lomesag Academy in Gabon, which has been his football home for the past four years.
