Sofapaka right fullback Thomas Wanyama has lavished praise on Ugandan duo of Coach Sam Timbe and midfielder Johnson Bagoole and believes they have more to offer to Sofapaka.

Wanyama, a young brother to Inter Milan’s McDonald Mariga and Southampton’s Victor Wanyama said that Timbe is a very good tactician and a disciplinarian as well.

“Timbe is a brilliant tactician”, Wanyama told Kawowo Sports. “He has done lots of improvement since his arrival at the club in June and his tough on discipline which is okay for us players”, he added.

The former City Star’s player also had kind words for ex-Iganga TC, Express FC and URA FC midfielder Johnson Bagoole who also plies his trade at Batoto Bamungu.

“Bagoole is a talented midfielder who has the versatility to play anywhere on the field. He is hard working and brings energy to the team.”


Born on April 15, 1989 to Mr. and Mrs. Noah Wanyama, his father Noah Wanyama is a former international with Harambee Stars and once coached Mbale Heroes in the Ugandan league.

He is a Kenyan international who made his debut in 2012 and was part of the Kenya team that lost 2-1 to Uganda in the finals of Tusker Challenge Cup in 2012 at Namboole.

He plays right full back and dons jersey 7 at Sofapaka Football Club. Besides Sofapaka, he has only played for KPL side Nairobi City Stars.

In 2010, he went for trials to France though nothing materialized into him getting a deal.

He currently has one year left on his contract and rumour has it that a club in Belgium whose identity remains unknown is his next destination.
