Allan Wetende Wanga has announced his retirement from top flight football after an active career of 14 years.
In a farewell message posted on his social media page, the 35 year-old said: “Fourteen years doing something that brings you joy, satisfaction and pride is a blessing. I have lived this blessing since I first kicked a football at a tender age and stepped into the stadium professionally.”
“My love for football has taken me places I had never imagined I would go, both for club and national duty. I have witnessed wins and losses, lifted trophies, endured the pain of being so close yet so far to important wins, through it all, I have been lifted by the love and support of an incredible army of supporters. “
“Without you, my fans, teammates, technical benches across the clubs that I have played for, my family, I wouldn’t have had the motivation to keep going. “
“Please accept my sincerest thanks for keeping me grounded, lifted me up when I needed that boost and kept me in check when I needed to get my game better.”
“As I exit the professional football stage, I take this opportunity to give you all my gratitude. I was because you were there for me. Thank you and God bless. See you outside the field.”
Wanga began his professional footballing career in 2005 and made his professional international debut representing Kenya in 2007.
