Boniface Muchiri played his last game for Tusker FC last weekend against Sofapaka and is now set to head out for a career change.
Muchiri signed for Tusker from Sony Sugar in 2016 and has helped the Brewers to win two league titles. The winger has been recruited into the Kenya Defence Forces and will later join Ulinzi Stars once he completes his military training.
Speaking to the club’s official website, the winger said, “When I joined the team five years ago, coach Matano talked to me and told me to listen to what he says, work hard and I would perform well. I think his advice is what has brought me here and I want to thank him for everything he has done to me.”
“He really demands a lot from his players and he has pushed me a lot and that is what has changed my life in and out of football. I want to say thank you to him,” he added.
Big thank you
“I want to thank everyone in the team from the Management for the five years I have been here. To my teammates and the technical bench, I also want to say thanks for the cooperation we have had and everything we have achieved. I also want to thank the fans for always supporting me in my good days and bad days and pushing me to be where I am.”
Robert Matano’s comments
“It’s very emotional for me because he is one of my best players. I have been with him since came and I transformed him to be a better player. It touches me a lot but I have to accept. It is beyond my control but I wish him the best. He is a very disciplined and committed player who has the heart to do something”
Muchiri will resume his football career once he completes his military training after six months.
