- Gor Mahia’s goalkeeper Levis Opiyo has expressed his intention to ensure the club attains more titles, and long-term goals to feature for Harambee Stars.
The goalie joined K’Ogalo from Nairobi City Stars on a two-year deal. He is ready to fulfill his dream against all odds.
“I am very delighted to join Gor Mahia which is the biggest club in Kenya. I want to play in the Caf Champions League and also get into the national team and I am sure being at Gor Mahia, I will win the league and realize these dreams. This is what motivated me to join the team,” Opiyo said.
“I am naturally a fighter and I am ready to compete and become a regular at the club. It is not easy but I am ready to battle. There are several clubs abroad monitoring my progress and I am eager to make a mark at Gor Mahia for a start,” the goalie added.
Opiyo stepped in goalkeeper Peter Odhiambo’s boots, who is linked with a transfer to Wazito FC. He honored Peter for the impact he created his life.
“He (Peter) has played a very big role in my career. As a young boy growing up I used to admire him and he guided me along the way. It was an absolute pleasure to play alongside him at City Stars,” he affirmed.
He shared his hopes of making big strides with K’Ogalo stating: “I am still young and this is the right time to take such risks for the sake of my future. We had a lengthy talk with the management of Gor Mahia and they understand where I am coming from – I don’t think I will have any major challenges at the club”.
