Having dominated for almost the entire game and even being a man up for the final 20 minutes, how do you feel having drawn against Kariobangi Sharks?

I'm disappointed and you can even see the players are disappointed, we played well as a team and defended well,  I think the last minute mistake costed us but we will rectify in training and focus for the next game.

Having played for AFC Leopards back in 2012-2014, how would you compare the two squads back then and now?

I don't have much to say about that, this is a young squad and they are playing well, impressive type of football and I would not want to compare them to the players I played with here in my first stint because at the end of the day it's teamwork that matters.

Having featured in the qualifiers, how confident are you getting into the final 23-man Harambee Stars squad for the African Cup of Nations?

I'm very confident because I have to do my best on the pitch if I want to make the squad so if I don't give my best I won't make it but it all boils down to working hard and proving myself and if I get the opportunity I will grab it with both hands.

What motivated your move back to AFC Leopards?

Family motivated me to come back to here because it's been long since I've been home and the other part is that I have a huge opportunity of showing what I have at the club and to return them to their previous glory then I also had a chat with Sebastien Migne who told me it would be a big opportunity to show him what I can offer.

Having played abroad for close to five years, how do you compare the leagues to the Kenyan Premier League?

Honestly, the level of Kenya and European countries are very different and quite hard to even draw a comparison but at the end of the day the most important thing is giving your best and if you get an opportunity to move aboard you take it and give your best. 

Do you see yourself moving back abroad at the end of the season?

I can't say for now, only God knows the answer but for sure I will know at the end of the season.
