Gor lad Nondi hopes to fol­low idol Vic­tor Wanyama over­seas

The Star (Kenya) - - Sports -

GOAL.COM/ Gor Mahia young­ster Amos Nondi hopes his rise into the se­nior team as well as fre­quent call ups to the na­tional foot­ball team Haram­bee Stars can in­spire him to em­u­late Tot­ten­ham Hot­spur mid­fielder Vic­tor Wanyama.

Nondi, who is the im­me­di­ate for­mer Haram­bee Stars U-20 skip­per, has at­trib­uted his rise to self be­lief. “It has been a good sea­son for me be­cause I have found some play­ing time at the club and also got sev­eral call ups to the na­tional team. I have not yet made a break into the fi­nal squad but I am work­ing hard to be there,” Nondi said.

“Def­i­nitely my tar­get is to be a reg­u­lar and move into the big Euro­pean Leagues like our cap­tain Vic­tor. I haven’t had time to train with him be­cause ev­ery time I have been called up, he links up with the team later on. But it is some­thing I am look­ing for­ward to; learn­ing from him will be a big plus,” the young­ster stated. The at­tack­ing mid­fielder started his ca­reer at Gor Mahia’s youth team be­fore be­ing loaned out to Sony Sugar last year to pick up vi­tal Premier League ex­pe­ri­ence.

At the be­gin­ning of the sea­son, he re­turned to Nairobi and was im­me­di­ately pro­moted to the se­nior side where he has been a fre­quent fig­ure on match day squad. “He is still grow­ing with a lot of po­ten­tial and I am pleased with what he is do­ing so far. But we have to give him time. I am happy with what he is do­ing so far,” his coach at Gor Jose Marcelo Fer­reira as­serted.
