The 2019/20 season couldn’t have started any better for Gor Mahia midfielder Kenneth Muguna.
Not only has he been named the captain of the most successful club in the country but he scored his maiden goal for the national team-Harambee Stars.
The midfielder while speaking to Futaa after the Sunday clash against Uganda Cranes where his goal ensured that Kenya didn’t leave embarrassed in their backyard said it was a good game of football more so in the second half and described scoring in front of the home fans a great feeling.
“It was a good game of football even though we didn’t get the win we had hoped for. I think my goal came at the right time and all that missed in the game after a good second half was a win.
“It was a great feeling to score my first national team goal in front of our home fans and I hope to score more in the same colors,” Muguna said.
From the national team to club duties where he will once again lead the team when they take on USM Algers in the First Round of the CAF Champions League.
Muguna has already led the team to a Super Cup title win and recorded two goals to his name in the league and while admitting he enjoys leading the team, he says the brilliant start to the season is not being fueled by the armband but the urge to step up when needed.
“My form isn’t about the captaincy; it’s about the entire team. We lost a lot of senior players heading into the new season so those of us who remained had to step up and guide the junior players coming from the youth team and those joining us from the other teams,” Muguna added.
Next for Muguna and team will be a trip to Algeria where they will be up against financially crippled USMA Algers on Sunday 15 September.
