Kenya national team coach Francis Kimanzi claims that he is ready to give Crawley Town starlet David Sesay a chance to stake a claim with Harambee Stars.
“Sesay is a decent player, I will 100 percent accept the call up from Kenya,” Kimanzi said.
“He is a young and right back and winger,” he added.
The ex-Chelsea and Watford youngster, has been in impressive form since joining the League Two side last year. He was recently voted as the club’s Young Player of the Season.
Who is David Sesay?
David Junior Deen Sesay was born on 18 September 1998 in Brent England, he joined Watford in 2007, turning professional in June 2016.
On 13 April 2018, it was announced that Sesay along with numerous other graduates, were to leave Watford at the end of their contracts in June.
He was called up to the Kenya national football team in March 2019, although he turned down the call-up in order to help Crawley Town in their relegation battle.
Kimanzi also revealed that he was in constant communication with Stars players discussing fitness and mental focus ahead of what will likely be a very busy international calendar when football eventually resumes.
“We also have Phillip (Mweene) in Germany and Daniel (Anyembe) in Denmark who have Kenyan roots and can play on the right side of defence.”
“My experience with these players (of Kenyan descent) is that normally they confirm their availability for national team duty in the media but when we call them up officially, they don’t respond. So if Sesay is now available, we will give him a chance,” he noted.
Coronavirus pandemic has wreaked havoc on the sports with virtually all calendars suspended.
Kenya will be engaged in 2021 Africa Cup of Nations and 2022 Fifa World Cup qualification matches.
