The goalkeeper was released a day after the accident, but his wife and son required additional medical attention, and it is because of their mounting bills that he has come forward to seek monetary support.
The 33-year-old custodian has been a constant figure in the national team in recent games until October last year when the former AFC Leopards goalkeeper was dropped from the squad that faced Comoros in the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers.
Former Stars tactician Francis Kimanzi revealed his worries over the physical shape of then first-choice goalkeeper, Matasi after omitting him from the team that played against Mozambique in an international friendly in Nairobi in October 2019 saying this decision was influenced by Matasi’s dip in form.
Matasi made his debut for the national team in 2017 and has so far featured in 27 games for Harambee Stars, including the Cecafa finals when Kenya lifted the trophy under Paul Put.
