- The experienced Nairobi City star left-back Wesley Onguso has revealed Dylan Kerr and the late Henry Omino remain the best coaches he has worked under as well as his best and worst moments in football.
Onguso worked with the late Omino at Western Stima in 2016 before leaving for Sofapaka a year later, and in 2018, he joined Gor Mahia where he met the English man.
“I have been under several top coaches in my footballing career,” Onguso said.
“However, Kerr and the late Omino are the best I ever worked under; their qualities were unmatched,” he added.
“At Western Stima, (Omino) was literally a father figure to us. He knew how to handle us and even when we had wronged, he lovingly corrected us. We loved and respected him for that and on the pitch, we gave our best,” he continued.
Onguso, who joined Nairobi City Stars in 2019 but spent about six months out of the field further explained how Kerr was different from the late Omino.
“For Kerr, his motivation was something else! He used to psych us up before matches and ensured every player is ready to play regardless of the opponent we were facing,” he said.
On his worst moments, Onguso reveals: “It was my worst moment in football because I could not do anything.”
“I fell sick, and thought it would take several weeks for me to be well, however, it was not the case. It took a whole six months for me to get back to playing shape. Imagine, six months without playing football, it was not easy for me but I finally managed to shake off my problem,” he explained.
He went on to reveal his best were the 2018 KPL winning with Gor Mahia and 2019/2020 season.
“I cannot forget 2018 because of winning the Kenyan Premier League (KPL) with Gor Mahia. It is a moment every player wishes to have and I feel privileged to have realized it,” Onguso said.
“Also the 2019/20 season because we gave our best to help City Stars get back to KPL. It was not an easy campaign, but I am happy we managed to go all the way,” he concluded.
