Harambee Stars midfielder Richard Odada has taken a moment to express his heartfelt gratitude to the community that has been a driving force behind his successful journey.

The 23-year-old player embarked on a heartwarming community drive in Kajiado where he not only donated essential supplies but also offered inspiration to aspiring young footballers.

Odada's charitable efforts unfolded at the Nakeel grounds in Kajiado where he distributed food items and extended a helping hand to those in need.

Your belief in me has been a driving force in my success, and to my entire team, thank you for your dedication and hard work. Your collective efforts have resulted in outstanding accomplishments, and I am truly grateful to be a part of such an exceptional event."

Odada's journey to becoming a football sensation has been nothing short of remarkable.

His recent success with Danish side Aalborg, where he has made a significant impact, has captured the hearts of football enthusiasts across the nation.

Initially joining Aalborg on loan from US club Philadelphia Union, Odada quickly proved his mettle, scoring four goals and providing an assist in just 12 games.

Odada's football journey began at Laiser Hill Academy, followed by a brief stint at AFC Leopards Youth before venturing to Europe where he has truly made his mark.

After trials in Italy, Switzerland, and Serbia, Odada secured his first contract abroad with Red Star Belgrade.

His tenure at Red Star began in the youth team, but it was not long before he earned his place in the senior squad. 

Following a series of loan stints, he made the decision to join the ranks of the Philadelphia Union in the United States in August 2022.
