Gor Mahia midfielder and 2016 Kenyan Premier League (KPL) MVP Kenneth Muguna says K’Ogalo offers a chance every aspiring professional footballer should take when given.
In a post-Harambee Stars training session interview with MadGoat TV, the former KF Tirana anchorman, currently in his best form and also called up to the national team ahead of the CHAN championships, says he the name that he is because of his club.
”Gor Mahia has given me a lot of exposure. I am now known not only in the country but also across the continent. It’s a good club for anyone who wants to grow in football,” he says.
Muguna came back to Gor Mahia before the start of the 2018-19 KPL season after a brief spell in Europe and in an injury-marred campaign- still stays hopeful he can carry his peak form into next season.
”This is a big step, the season has been long and with many challenges. Personally, as a player, it has been difficult and I am glad I peaked just as it was going to end. I feel I am ready to represent my country once again,” he adds.
He is not new to the national fold though, having previously played four times against India, Mozambique, Thailand and Equatorial Guinea. This, however, does not blemish the fact that he is nonetheless grateful for the return.
‘It feels great to be back in the national team again, and I hope that I will stay here,” says Muguna, who has already won the league with Gor.
The Kenya national team has been training at the Moi International Sports Centre Kasarani, with the first session conducted on Monday and Tuesday, a total of 27 players of the 62 called-up for both squads were in attendance.
Coach Sebastien Migne called up 62 players, 30 for AFCON duty and 32 for the CHAN. Muguna is in the CHAN squad.
