FOREIGN TEAM

Wanjala, who beat Gor Mahia’s Meddie Kagere and Kariobangi Sharks striker Masoud Juma to the award, said: "I am impressed with what I have done as an individual and what we have collectively achieved as a team.

"We are greatly underprivileged since we lack financial sponsors but we still put in the hard work.

"I'm looking forward to playing in a bigger team in Europe, which is not easy so I have to do all in my power, work really hard to see it happen," the soft-spoken striker said.
