Victor Mugabe Wanyama is a Kenyan footballer who plays as a defensive midfielder or a center back for Scottish Premier League team, Celtic, and the Kenya national team. Wanyama scored the first goal in Celtic’s historic 2-1 win over Barcelona on November 7th, 2012.
The brother of McDonald Mariga of Inter Milan, he is the first Kenyan to ever sign with the Scottish Premiere League. His first international team, however, was in Belgium (Beerschot AC) and the Scottish Premiere League had a hard time trying to get him from them. There was also interest from Russia’s CSKA Moscow.
Undoubtedly a very gifted and valuable player, he has proven his worth several times, earning him the title of Scottish Premier League Young Player of the Month in December 2011. His agent has stated that he has recently turned down the renewed contract from Celtic, raising speculation that he could be fielding offers from English teams.
