Allan Wetende Wanga has hinted at a possibility of contesting for the post of the FKF president in the next elections slated for October 2024.

“I have been a top scorer twice; I have won the FKF Cup with AFC Leopards and Sofapaka.

I have also won CECAFA with the national team (Harambee Stars) and so I just want to thank God for the 14 years he has been in the field,” Wanga added.

In the run-up to the last FKF elections speculation was rife he Would gun for the seat but he never thrust his hat in the ring.

The 35-year old has also featured for the likes of Petro Atletico of Angola, FC Baku of Azerbaijan, Hoang Anh Gia Lai of Vietnam, Sudanese giants El Merreikh and Azam FC of Tanzania.

“I remember I met top players like Ronaldinho (Gaucho, the Brazilian retired professional footballer) in 2018 and also when I was in El Merreikh as we were in Qatar pre-season I met Van Der Sar (Edwin, the former Man United and Netherlands goalkeeper) and I felt very good,” Wanga underscored.

His last assignment on the pitch was with Kakamega Homeboyz last term.
