I finally found a Kenyan in the European leagues (it has been quite a hunt). The leagues are littered with west African players, prompting somebody to do some idiotic study on why west Africans are ‘better’ players than east Africans. In protest, I am going to highlight the players that are influencing the game from Kenya!
Denis Oliech was making waves at the age of 19 when he played for Al-Arabi in Qatar in 2003. He now plays for AJ Auxerre, Ligue 1 (on loan from FC Nantes) in France and is still making a mark as a striker for the team. He signed a four year contract with them that started in 2006 and they seem really happy with him.
