Mwangi Wants More After Breaking Duck

Mathare United forward John Mwangi celebrates his winner in the 1-0 win over Tusker at the Ruaraka Stadium on Sunday, April 8, 2018.

Mathare United forward John Mwangi has expressed his desire to increase his tally after regaining his scoring touch in the 1-0 win over Tusker at the Ruaraka Grounds on Sunday.

Mwangi, who is only in his second season at the club, opened his account for the season against the Brewers with a diving header in the 44th minute that proved to be the winner in a tightly contested match.

Unlike his partners in attack--Cliff Nyakeya and Clifford Alwanga—who have had a flying start to the season that has seen them score nine goals between them, Mwangi has struggled to replicate his form towards the end of the 2017 season.

His slow start saw him lose his place to Daniel Mwaura but he repaid Coach Francis Kimanzi’s faith in him with a crucial goal yesterday.


“I have to thank the coaches because they have shown faith in me despite not having a good start to the season. I am happy that I have finally got my first goal of the season and also helped the team to win,” said Mwangi.

Having broken the duck, the youngster is keen on maintaining his place in the first eleven by getting more goals.


“I now want to work on scoring consistently because I have been getting in scoring positions but I have been unlucky not to score. I took the chance and I am happy that the scoring touch is now back,” he added.
