Kenyan international Arnold Origi will be out of action for some time and his Norwegian team Lillestroem SK has stated it is in dire need of an experienced goalkeeper.
Club Head Coach Runar Kristiansson confirmed on the club’s official site that they are on the search for a new keeper to cushion themselves after the injury to the Origi, Kenya’s number one.
The coach confirmed that the club has in the meantime, acquired the services of 21-year-old custodian Pal Vestly Heigre on a two match loan from Viking FK.
“We are looking for a new goalkeeper. The short time solution is the acquisition of Pal Vestly Heigre from Viking but he will be here for the next two league games only,
“Origi thought he would be ready for the match against Tromso two weeks ago but he may be out of action for a long time,” the coach noted.
The 32-year-old Origi has been in top form for the club in the past three seasons featuring in 70 league games out of a possible 90 rounds. This season alone, he has appeared in ten, lastly being in a 1 – 2 loss away to Rosenborg on 16 May.
