Harambee Stars defender Joseph Stanley Okumu continues to shine abroad for his club KAA Gent. Okumu who signed a four-year deal that is estimated at 400 million a few months ago has established himself as a starter in defence.
Yesterday, his side travelled to face Partizan Belgrade at Stadion Partizana in UEFA Europa Conference League game week three. It was a game Okumu's team needed a win to top the group standings. All went well with the first half ending with a goalless draw. In the second half, Gent started pressing hard to get a goal and in the 59th minute, Samuel Kums netted brilliantly after he nicely tapped in Marko Samoise's through pass.
Okumu who plays as a centre back had an outstanding performance throughout the match as he kept Partizan Belgrade strikers at bay in most cases. His partnership at the back with Owusu, Samoise and Ngadeu-Ngadjui was instrumental for Gent's win.
In my view, Kenya has many talented players. These talents need to be nurtured by the government properly by ensuring infrastructures are put in place.
