In a live Facebook session with Passion Sports this week, Were said that despite being happy to have made the cut to represent the nation, he wasn’t happy after not happy at how things went.
“I was happy to be there but wasn’t happy since I didn’t play. I was a free agent at that moment and I knew if I played well, I would have secured a good deal. We were in a good group that had established players like Mane and a good show would have definitely done me good,” Were said.
The player, however, said he took everything positively and believes that as a nation Kenya can still make out to another AFCON.
“I took every setback in the competition positively and took it upon me to work harder and believe for the best. I'm still active and I believe we can still make it to another AFCON,” Were added.
