The European transfer window rumbles on, so slowly you can count the clock ticking.
This time round, there has not been too much action on the front.
Usually, we would be hearing of big money moves, but I guess the European recession as well as football's approaching Financial Fair Play rules have slowed clubs down.
Which means that Eden Hazard's 32 million pound (Ksh 4 billion) move to Chelsea is the largest fee so far paid.
Where are our players?
That aside, I am here to ask a question..
Where are the African players in the transfer action?
So far, the bigger clubs have not been linked with African players and I am not talking about Didier Drogba.
This time, there is no big transfer story linking a player from the continent with a huge club, as is usual.
Oh, there is one.
Our very own Victor Wanyama is in the news... big news.
Manchester United, Arsenal, Man City are rumoured to all want his services.
Which is something we are not used to at all in East Africa, let alone Kenya.
If it works out, it would do Kenyan football no harm. It would put us on the world stage for once.
One of our own in a Man U or Arsenal jersey.. Come on.
Apart from Wanyama, there are no other African players of note, are there?.
There was a time when we had an African player in the best sides in the world.
What happened to the Kanu's, Okocha's, the Fortune's, Geremi's, Eto's and even Drogba's of past days?
Where are the world beaters, the news makers?
what are we doing wrong nowadays?
Too much baggage
A friend reckons that we Africans have got too much baggage.
We first of all lie about our ages.. Who beleives Victor Wanyama is 20 years old?
Another says our quality has gone down.
I personally feel that we do have the African Cup of Nations which is a huge bother. There was one in 2012 and now another in 2013... Who wants to invest big money only to be derpived of their players at a stage in the season?
What's the story?
