Kenyan midfielder Macharia training with Georgian side

Ex-Kenya U20 midfielder John Macharia is training with Georgian Liga2 side FC Rustavi with the aim of securing a deal before the season Kick-Off slated for March.

Macharia featured for Guria in the same league last season and failed to renew his contract with the team he joined from Kolkheti Pohti.

Speaking to Futaa from Georgia, Macharia said:” Iv been training with Rustavi since the start of the year and I'm confident that things will be okay. Everything has gone well in the sessions and I hope we can finalize things soon.”

Asked why he chose the team despite having had a reputation in the country’s top-flight league, Macharia intimated that they could get promoted to the top flight should one of the teams be demoted.

“There is a team whose fate lies with the league body due to some financial problems. If they are liquidated, then Rustavi will be promoted. That apart I think the plans they (Rustavi) have for the season is something I buy into and I hope to be part of it,” Macharia said.

Macharia moved to Georgia in 2017 where he was snapped by Pohti from National Super League side FC Talanta; the club having been home to midfielder Amos Nondi (now at Dila Gori) and Eric ‘Marcelo’ Ouma (now at AIK)
