Having joined Tusker fc three years back from AFC Leopards, the veteran defender has captained his side for two years and all he can say is that he is happy and will still be but one thing he reckons for sure while speaking to www.tuskerfc.co.ke is “if it were not for my wife, I would not be playing football currently.”
Lowest moment in his career;
"When I picked a leg injury nearing the end of last season (2016), I thought I would never play football again and that meant my career is gone. I sat back and thought I would be back maybe in mid-season but that was my own thoughts since God had much better plans for me so I joined the team in pre-season. I had considered quitting what I love but again the inner voice in me told me not to since I was out already on crutches then I underwent a surgery. Had it not been for my wife, I would have left football. She stood by me and gave me strength. My team mates also fought for me by winning the double; I thank them."
What has been your highest point while in football?
Winning the prestigious “dabo dabo” league title and GOtv-Shield; it was the highest moment in my long career. I have been at several clubs like Sofapaka, AFC leopards but we never won a double, so this was special to me.
Before a match what is your source of motivation?
Every time I wake up I go down on my knees and ask God for strength. I still have a few years ahead of me and He has never let me down. Before a match you will find the silent me once more listening to my gospel playlist from my phone that I will stop it once in the dressing room getting ready for warm up.
Life beyond football?
I didn't know I had a talent in analyzing football but there is a day Carol Radull came and told me that I can do it and as usual I was not up to task until later last year that I went for a show at Bamba sports arranged by the club and yes from there henceforth I have loved the other side of me as you know I will never play football forever."
