Former Harambee Stars goalkeeper Arnold Origi has extended his contract with Finnish team IFK Helsingfors for one more year until 2020. The 35-year old joined the team earlier this year and put in performances that have earned him a new deal.

Origi suffered a setback Injune when he broke his right wrist while competing for a ball with an opposing striker in a league match. He was out for 6 weeks.
An unexpected surprise in the journey, but it’s no reason to stop. Doc says 6 weeks out, i say 6 weeks of some serious groundwork. 6 weeks to focus all the energy in skill, mental and physical sharpening and resharpening. Coming back in a better n even higher level. 🎥 @Ruutufi pic.twitter.com/VyzxkmGBqp
