Posta Rangers snap up Kago, AFC’s Ingotsi

first_imgPosta have also re-signed forward Cavin Odongo from Kariobangi Sharks after the youngster failed to flourish having moved to the then Premier League newbies at the beginning of 2017.“We have concentrated mostly on forward players because that was our major weakness last season. We defended very well but our quality in the final third was lacking. These are players who will add a lot of impetus to our forward play,” Pamzo told Capital Sport.“I have watched Ingotsi at AFC and I really like his energy. He is young and promising and will be a good addition. Kago comes in with a lot of experience and he is a player with quality as well,” further added the tactician.
