Brian Osumba back to KPL action after two-week honeymoon in Italy – PHOTOS

The Kenyan Premier League (KPL) had a rough 2019 after the exit of gaming giant SportPesa who were the title sponsors of the league.

Clubs, which were assured of monthly grants, struggled to stay afloat and players suffered due to non-payment of salaries and bonuses.

HONEYMOON IN ITALY

But the beauty of life is that it doesn’t stop due to adversities, it goes on and on.

And hard times turn on the brain to think and come up with solutions to the problems we face.

Despite the financial mess in the league, one Kenyan footballer who had an amazing year is Brian Osumba, who turns out for Posta Rangers.

The former Tusker FC midfielder tied the knot with his long-term fiancée recently and went to Italy for a two-week honeymoon.

QUALIFIED ACCOUNTANT

Yeah, sounds like something that is not newsworthy, but it is big news in Kenyan football that a local player can afford a pompous church wedding and a vacation in Italy during such hard financial times in the game.

Osumba and his fiancée even got to visit the iconic San Siro Stadium that hosts AC Milan and Inter Milan.

He is now back at work and expected to start as Posta Rangers hosts AFC Leopards this afternoon (Wednesday) at Kenyatta Stadium in Machakos.

Osumba is a qualified accountant who studied at the Kenya College of Accountancy University and Strathmore University.

He is also an astute businessman specializing in the construction industry.
