FKFPL’s Most Valuable Player and Golden Boot winner Eric Kapaito has dreams of one day making a big money move abroad.
The 25 year old has done it all in the Kenyan football scene with Kariobangi Sharks and now feels that it is time he tried something new.
Kapaito won big on Tuesday night, taking home a cool Kshs. 1.5 million (1 million for MVP and 500k for the Golden Boot).
The striker also won a 55 inch TV courtesy of Star Times and fully sponsored trips to the Maasai Mara and Mombasa thanks to Bonfire Ventures.
This is the second time in recent years that Kapaito was winning the MVP award as well as the golden boot after scoring 24 goals and providing 5 assists in the 2020/21 FKFPL season.
Speaking to journalists at the Safari Park Hotel on Tuesday after the awards’ Gala, Kapaito couldn’t help but dream big.
“It’s a great feeling. It has been a great season and I just want to thank the almighty. The second MVP award is the best for me as I did it with 24 goals” said Kapaito.
“My talent motivates me a lot. These awards show that I have been working hard. Nothing comes without putting in hard work. I played a lot of games and my team also helped me a lot ” he added.
“As a player you really need to play at the top level. I hope I get a good team outside for me to also experience what other players are experiencing out there”.
“There are some talks but for now am under Kariobangi Sharks”.
The striker stated that he is highly motivated by compatriot Michael Olunga who currently turns out for Al Duhail SC.
“I am hugely inspired by Olunga and we are happy for all the effort he is making” he said.
Kapaito urged all the young players to keep putting in the work and believe in themselves.
“I want to urge players who are yet to hit the headlines, the ones yet to be known that everything is possible, those players in the grassroots should trust in the process, anything is possible, and it is possible,” Kapaito told Goal.
