AFC Leopards winger Peter Thiong’o has stated that he was very happy when they beat his former side Kakamega Homeboyz this season.
AFC Leopards had previously not had a good record against Homeboyz at Bukhungu having lost all matches against Homeboyz in Kakamega before that
Thiong’o, who joined Leopards at the beginning of this season, did not fail to remind Leopards fans the pain he inflicted against them while at Homeboyz
When I was in Homeboyz, we used to beat AFC Leopards whenever we wanted. The first season I was there I scored against them (AFC Leopards) and provided two assistsThiong’o
Thiong’o was using the example to show that this is AFC Leopards’ year to shine having defied previously difficult odds. By attaining a first and beating Homeboyz at Bukhungu, they can go all the way an win the league for the first time in 22 years.
The winger is yet to secure a strong starting position in the side but has had some really impressive showings in his appearance with his lone goal ensuring a win against Ulinzi.
His statement is sure not to go the right way with Homeboyz fans but will sure sit very well with his new AFC Leopards fraternity where he has now settled.
