Former Harambee Stars midfielder Victor Mugubi Wanyama disclosed on Wednesday, September 28, 2022 that he wants to win the Major League Soccer (MLS) title before hanging his boots.
Speaking from Canada, the 31-year-old stated that he has done almost everything in his career.
“I think I have done it all. Maybe the only thing that I haven’t done is winning a trophy with the national team. But the rest I think I have done," stated Wanyama.
When asked what one thing he feels he has to do before retiring, Wanyama replied that it will be a dream lifting the MLS Cup before putting a full stop to his impressive career.
“If I have to say that, winning the play offs, you know winning the MLS Cup,” he added.
Wanyama played an instrumental role to help CF Montreal reach the 2022 MLS playoffs.
He scored a fantastic header in the 89th minute of their clash against Columbus Crew to put his side back in the game before Zachary Brault-Guillard’s strike propelled the Québec-based side to the playoffs.
The father of one is without doubt the most decorated Kenyan player of all time. He won back to back Scottish Premier League titles with Celtic between 2011 and 2013.
Mugubi, who is the younger brother to former Inter Milan ace McDonald Mariga also won a Canadian Championship with his current club in 2021.
In November 7, 2012, Wanyama became the first East African player to net a goal in the UEFA Champions League - he scored a header in Celtics 2-1 surprise win over La Liga giants FC Barcelona.
The Kamukunji High School alumni also explained the biggest hurdle that stopped him from winning the UEFA Champions League title while at Tottenham Hotspurs.
“The toughest game was Man City’s game. First leg we won 1-0, the second leg was tough because City drew everything at us and you know playing against them is not easy. So that was like the most difficult hurdle,” he ended.
