Allan Wanga releases statement after Harambee Stars snub

Kakamega Homeboyz striker Alla Wanga has released a statement after he was omitted from the Harambee Stars squad that will represent the country in the 2019 African Cup of Nations.

Wanga who is currently the reigning Kenyan Premier League top goalscorer with 18 goals was among those chopped from the team that has already left for France by coach Sebastien Migne.

According to the striker, he was humbled by the backing he has received from the fans since the news broke and despite the omission, saying he did his best in impressing Migne who he said had his reasons for omitting him out.

Despite the setback, Wanga promised, in the statement released on his social media feeds, that he will continue to work hard and wished the team the best of luck in Egypt.
