Olando undergoing trials in Vancouver



Former Harambee Stars and Tusker FC midfielder Chrispin “Alphy” Olando is hoping to impress and get signed at Major League Soccer side Vancouver Whitecaps.

Sections of the media had incorrectly reported that the player has joined the North American outfit on a six-month contract.

Olando, however, has since clarified his situation, saying he is still on trial with the club.

“I’m yet to sign any deal with Vancouver Whitecaps but my hope is that I will impress the coaches and I get a contract,” Olando said.

“We just started training and I will know my fate after the pre-season in the USA. I love the environment here and the facilities too. Everything is handled professionally and I like it that way. Everybody has been welcoming and supportive and I’m really enjoying myself,” he added.

Olando also expressed optimism that this would be a great year for him.

“Last season was not good for me as I was dogged with recurrent injuries but that is the past now and I’m in good shape now,” he said.

“I hope to land a deal here (Vancouver Whitecaps) and use that as the pathway to getting my career back on track. I hope also to get back my position in Harambee Stars this year,” he concluded.
