Two months ago, the Leopards were rock bottom of the Kenya Premier League but a new found belief and determination has made them leap from the ‘relegation zone’ to 10th in the league table.
On Thursday, the team took on a Posta Rangers side who had just beaten Mount Kenya United 6-2 in their previous fixture. An early goal by the hosts seemed to have scared the skin off the Leopards but they gathered themselves and got the equalizer just in time then securing two more goals that ensured that they beat John Kamau’s Rangers 3-1.
However, many who went to watch the game had one interest; watch Paul ‘Maldez’ Were in action.
The ever exciting speedy winger who is in his second stint at Leopards did not disappoint as he dazed through the Posta backline and in the second half, he teed up Whyvonne Isuza for an easy tap in.
We caught up with Were after the match and asked him what really inspired him to signing against Ingwe.
‘It wasn’t an easy decision to make but I got inspiration from my family and the need to stay active ahead of the Africa Cup of Nations,’
‘Harambee Stars Coach Sebastien Migne wanted to monitor me closely and that’s why I had to return home,’ he told fourfourtwomedia.
‘Honestly speaking, I feel home being at AFC and I’m so far impressed with how the boys are playing. I think I have made the right decision because we also have our own challenges abroad. But I need to work hard and keep on pushing in every game.’
