Mariga primed for comeback in Italian second division

January 7th, 2016 1 min read


MacDonald Mariga’s agent Lorenzo Marcheshi says he “hopes to have news” on the future of the Kenyan international by the end of this month.

In an interview with Nairobi News, the Italian also said the midfielder is considering offers from several second division (Serie B) clubs.

“We are now awaiting some news about Serie A team…. and we will then valuate the situation in Serie B…. but nothing concrete,” Marcheshi said.

Marcheshi’s remarks come in the wake of online reports suggesting that Mariga, who has been out of competitive action for the past six months, is on the verge of signing up with Serie B side FC Latina.


Mariga has been training with the club for the past fortnight as Marcheshi tries to conclude a deal with the management.

“Practically he has not played for a long time but his undoubted technical value may still induce Latino to trust him into making him sign a two year deal,” reported.

Mariga boasts a wealth of football experience and success, having featured for a couple of high ranking European clubs including Helsinborgs, Inter Milan, Real Socieadad and Parma.

He has however been unlucky with injuries, which led to a loss of form and consequent exclusion from the national football team, leading to suggestion that his career could be slowing down.
