STARS ABROAD Exeter City clear air on Harambee Stars defender’s fitness after he pulls off clutching hamstring
Caldwell has explained why he had to sub off the Harambee Stars defender when he clutched his hamstring despite enjoying his "best game" since signing for the club.
His connection with the East African country dates back to July 2022 when he spent two weeks there after transitioning from Leeds to Manchester City.
During his visit, Phillips immersed himself in a safari experience at Tsavo National Park, residing in a luxurious camp within this expansive destination.
He expressed his admiration for Kenya on social media during his stay, emphasizing the unforgettable experience of witnessing wild animals in their natural habitat.
“The past two weeks we travelled to Kenya on a Safari which was an experience I don’t think we will ever be able to top!!
“Me &my girlfriend absolutely love animals so having the chance to do our best David Attenborough is something we won’t ever forget, seeing these animals in the wild was unreal!,” Philips posted on his Instagram page.
Now donning the number 11 shirt for West Ham, Phillips expressed his excitement about claiming this number for the first time in his career.
His previous shirt numbers included 40 at Leeds, 27, and later 23 for five seasons. However, the number 23 was unavailable at Manchester City, having been retired in 2003 out of respect for the late Marc-Vivien Foe, a former City star who tragically passed away after collapsing on the pitch.
