Soon after Kenya’s sons, Tottenham’s Victor Wanyama and Liverpool’s Divock Origi booked their tickets to the Champions League finals, we caught up with former Harambee Stars coach, Ghost Mulee to get his reaction.
Mulee was as elated as any Kenyan to have what is now known as a ‘Kenyan derby’ with all eyes on Harambee Stars captain Wanyama.
Wanyama will become only the second Kenyan to feature in a Champions League final after his elder brother, McDonald Mariga in 2010.
After come back victories by both teams against Barcelona and Ajax, Mulee found it hard to predict which of the English side will go on to claim European glory.
He however believes Liverpool, who came from a deep hole to oust Barcelona in a memorable match, will go on to win the trophy.
However, he doesn’t see them winning their 6th Champions league trophy in 90 minutes but will rely heavily on shoot outs.
June 1st I am torn in between the two teams. I was supporting Tottenham because there was a Kenyan, I was supporting Liverpool because there was a Kenyan.
Now if you ask me I think this game will go to the wire, I don’t think there will be a clear winner in 90 minutes and it will head into extra time where the penalties will decide. It is hard to decide but I think Liverpool will win.
Will Mulee be attending the finals which will be held in Madrid, Spain?
I am so broke I was looking at the ticket prices mama Mia I was nearly collapsing!
