Ugandan defensive player Ivan Anguyo has confessed he was shocked to be released by Gor Mahia at the end of last season, and is now keen to show his worth when he lines for Kenyan Premier League newcomers Kenya Revenue Authority this year.
“To be honest, I did not see that one (release) coming. My assessment was that I had an all round impressive performance last season and scored some crucial goals for the team that should have merited another chance for me,” the burly player noted.
KRA coach Ken Kenyatta has confirmed the former Kampala City Council (KCC) player, who’s penned a one-year deal, will be expected to play an influential role at the club because of his ability and experience.
“He can play in a variety of positions including central defense and defensive midfield just like (new AC Milan signing Micheal) Essien. If you watched Essien play under Mourinho at Chelsea and Real Madrid, you’ll notice that he could switch into several positions during a game. Anguyo brings that quality which is very important for my team, besides the important fact that he has the experience and exposure in the top flight and will thus assist my players,” Kenyatta noted.
Anguyo made a goal-scoring debut for KRA when they trounced Nakumatt 2-0 in a friendly match played on January 21 at Kenyatta National Hospital.
“I also seek to have a positive impact on whichever team I play for. I also want to help the players here improve, plus also try protect them from bullies during matches,” revealed Anguyo, who is known for his no-nonsense approach to the game.
The two have so far done well in the friendly matches the club has played against Super Loaf FC, Nakumatt FC, Mumbi Nationale and MOYAS FC with Rama scoring in the latter.
