One thing that pieces me off is seeing talents going at waste and if that is not enough frustrations on the way. Here I’m talking about sports administrators who are in the position to shape and tap talents in our community by creating facilities that would enable the youth take sports as a serious career like in other countries. While writing this article the talk of the town is of the wonder boy Mariga (National team player – Harambee stars) who will be playing for Manchester city (fingers crossed bro) in the English premier league. This is a great honor for our country and everyone is very optimistic that things will go well and thus create windows of opportunities for many ‘Marigas’ in the country.
Most of my peers desires to play in one of the top leagues in the world and the fact is, it is not an easy road as many might think...tracing history back all Kenyan football players have something to say about the 'dust of wealth' where it all starts. Do you know how much Mariga will earn if the deal goes through? What was his recipe for success? What can be done to make the ‘dust of wealth’ a reality to many youth? This and more are the mind boggling questions I always ask myself.
No matter what...focus!
size doesn't matter!
What the future holds for them...you can do it! ( Nike- just do it!)
