Celebrated Kenyan goalkeeper Arnold Origi used his vacation in the country to promote football at the grass root level.

In an exclusive interview with Ghetto Radio Origi said he decided to dedicate his holiday time in the country to charity work because he understands the struggles young players go through.

“We got the jersey that Divock wore for the game against Burnley  to be signed by key Liverpool stars like Robertson, Van Dijk,Shaqiri,Milner and Nabir Keita which we auctioned online and the money we collected was used to pay school fees for young football star in Kayole who shone in football tournament in Dandora.” He said

Through his social media pages he asked local grassroots football teams to tag him in an online video of their training sessions with the lucky teams getting football boots.

Origi was impressed by two lucky teams who got themselves some boots and training gear.

“I was impressed by a team from Kwale and Kisumu where I personally delivered the boots to the children whose feet were blistered for playing in the hot sand barefoot this has been a motivating factor” he added

During his stay in the country he trained with Kariobangi Sharks saying he was impressed by their goalkeeper and also acknowledged Bandari goalkeeper after he watched him in a match stating the country has a great future in goalkeeping.
