Ex-Gor goalie opens up on struggles with injuries & 2017 fine run

Nursing a recurring injury that sidelines one for the better spell of season can be the most besetting thing for a football player. 

Kakamega Homeboyz skipper, David Juma has had a similar fight in past two seasons and he spoke to futaa.com on how he rose from the law of the struggles to keep a decent record in the concluded season.

Behind Homeboyz's resurgence and subsequent fifth place finish was Juma's solid stand at goal.  The former Gor keeper amassed 15 clean sheets from 27 game a run put him among the best custodians and even so Juma only speaks modestly of his achievements.


-I have to content with what I managed to achieve. I can't say missing the last few games barred me from the golden glove. It has not been easy, being sidelined for almost the entire of 2015 after my move from Gor Mahia. 2016/only proved an on and off season as I gradually made progress to full recovery, Jadile who missed the first five games and final two of the ended season told futaa.

-Applying myself every time i got the chance at goal and keeping my confidence that you can do it saw me through the season, the keeper says on his season spurring factors.

Coming off a season punctuated with injuries Jadile knows just how unpredictable a season could be and his remaining optimist if he stays injury free in next campaign that is set to start in February 2018.

-I can only wish to stay injury-free every player want to surpass his previous record, aim higher. The same holds, its my prayer that I stay in good shape and hope for a better season, he concludes.
