By Peter Ochieng
Former Harambee Stars Captain Victor Wanyama will leave CF Montreal when his contract runs out at the end of this season.
Wanyama joined the CF Montreal in 2020 from English Premier League (EPL) side Tottenham Hotspur.
Speaking to members of the press after one of the team’s training sessions, Wanyama said he has had a good ride at Montreal, and the best time to leave is at the end of the season.
The midfielder said he will not return to CF Montreal in 2023.
“At the end of the season, I think I will leave. I have enjoyed being part of the team, it has been great,” said Wanyama.
“I know at the end of the season, I will be free to leave. As long as I am here, my focus is on the games and to make sure we finish well. From there, I can have the chance to say goodbye,” added the 31-year-old midfield enforcer.
The Kenyan did not give a hint of where his next stop will be.
His football journey has seen him play for Helsingborgs IF in Sweden, Beerschot AC in Belgium, Celtic in Scotland and English sides Southampton and Tottenham.
Besides his football doing the talking on the pitch, Wanyama is putting up a multi-million Sports Academy in his native Busia County.
Additionally, he sponsors tens of learners in Secondary Schools, through his Victor Wanyama foundation.
