Like the father like the son and that’s what we can say Allan Wanga is doing; following the footsteps of his father Frank Wetende in his football career.
Wanga whose one year contract with HAGL in Vietnam expired three weeks ago has expressed interest of joining AFC Leopards ahead of the 2012 KPL season.
His father a former international played for AFC and Kisumu Posta in the 70s and early 80s before retiring, and Wanga wants to keep his legacy alive at the den.
Though the former Tusker and Sofapaka striker will see his childhood dream of donning blue and white jersey come true, he’s urged AFC fans not to expect miracles from him in the quest for the title they last won in 1998.
-My dad once played for Ingwe, it has always been my dream to play for them. As for now I can’t promise miracles but I just pray God to keep me fit and in good shape so that I can give my best to the club and help them win many games, Wanga told futaa.com.
The nine goals scorer for Harambee Stars in 25 international matches who will be arriving late next week to finalize his move is optimistic that Leopards will clinch the title.
-I will be coming next week to put pen to paper, I have monitored their signings very keenly and last season they finished on a high note. It’s a good team and I believe teamwork will propel us to victory, observed Wanga.
Wanga will now battle it out with Mike Baraza, Victor Ochieng, Emmanuel Tostao, Francis Chinjili and Jimmy Bagaye for the starting position at AFC.
