Supersport United scouts monitor Malindi’s Mwinyi and Moses
An official from South Africa Premier League side Supersport United has revealed they will be keenly looking at two players from the Kenyan team. “We will be here when the games kick off scouting for talent from across the teams including Kenya,” said the official “We are especially interested in two players Omar Mwinyi and Eugene Moses,” he revealed.
“We will also be looking at wing players very keenly especially the left wing,” added the official who requested for anonymity. Eugene Moses is a Form 3 student at Muyeye High School in Malindi and plays in the defensive midfield position. He participated in the 2008 and 2009 Gothia Cup in Sweden and has also trained with Serie “A” side Genoa back in 2010.
Eugene who also played in last year’s COPA Coca-Cola tournament likens his play to Tusker’s Crispin Olando. His counterpart Omar Mwinyi, nicknamed “Samba” thanks to his dribbling skills is 16 years-old and plays as a central striker. He is also a student at Muyeye High School and has played in the Copa for the last four years.
His role model is Gor Mahia’s Kevin Omondi and Barcelona’s Cesc Fabregas. Copa Coca-Cola originated in Mexico in 1998 and is a national youth football tournament that seeks to support the development of grassroots youth talent. Copa Coca-Cola works in partnership with government and/ or football federations to make the tournament one of the leading events in a country’s football calendar. Currently COPA Coca-Cola takes place in multiple nations around the world including USA, Argentina, Brazil, Germany and Chile, and culminates in a World Cup style International Copa Coca-Cola tournament (ICCC) each summer.
