Allan Wanga retires from International Football

Kakamega Homeboyz and former Harambee Stars striker Allan Wanga has announced his retirement from International football.

Wanga who was omitted from the 2019 African Cup of Nations squad and missed the Kenyan Premier League’s season 2018/19 golden boot accolade by a whisker has said he will now concentrate on his club.

The 33-year-old has had a glittering career with his journey taking him as far as Azerbaijan where he featured for FK Baku.

Apart from Baku and Homeboyz, Wanga has featured for Tusker FC, Angola’s Petro Atletico, Hoang Anh Gia Lai of Vietnam, AFC Leopards, Sudan’s Al-Merreikh and Tanzania’s Azam FC

Wanga’s Statement

For 12 years, I have had the singular privilege and great honour to represent my country on the football pitch.

Together with the support of the team, the management and the fans at large, I believe I have represented my country to the best of my ability.

Its now time for me to pave way for other players who I believe will embody the spirit of Harambee as I trust I did.

I wish the National Team the very best in their future endeavours and now transition from the pitch to the terrace as the team’s biggest cheerleader.

I will now dedicate my time to my county Kakamega and my club.

Thank you FKF, thank you Kenya for the decade-plus of togetherness.
