- KCB towering defender Mike Kibwage has revealed his big dreams set himself the target of winning the KPL title and play in Caf Champions League in the next few seasons.
Kibwage, who believes he can achieve his dreams as soon as next season, has been instrumental for the Bankers since joining from AFC Leopards, is quickly establishing himself among the best in the country.
“As a player I have dreams and they keep me going,” Kibwage said.
“As I had said, we are targeting the KPL (Kenyan top tier title) next season and we believe it is achievable. But for me, I want to win the Caf Champions League in the next few seasons. This is not meant for some players it is meant for all, the difference is the effort one makes to achieve it,” he explained.
Under the new management and the BetKing sponsorship, the 2020/21 season might kick-off in October and the defender hopes it goes according to plan.
“I am yearning to give my best to my team and win the Defender of the Season Award on a back-to-back basis,” Kibwage stated.
“All this will happen if the league returns, and we hope it happens as planned. We are going for it as a team, and I am also going for my targets, my individual objectives, and nothing is going to stop me,” he continued.
According to the Kenyan defender, it is not ending at winning the KPL and Caf Champions League but his big dreams lie international.
“Most people, most football fans watch Uefa Champions League, it is where the big boys dine together. That is my dream competition which at one time I want to play. It is achievable, and once again, it is all about hard work. It is my long term target and I am optimistic I will realize it,” the 22-year-old defender concluded.
