Nicholas Kipkirui in Action For Gor Mahia//Photo Courtesy

Nicholas Kipkirui has received much praise from Gor Mahia fraternity after setting an incredible record during their 5-1 win to Burundian side Aigle Noir at Moi Sports Centre, Kasarani on Sunday.

The former Zoo Kericho star has made a name at Gor and is currently one of the forces steering the Green Army to glory. After bagging two goals in their pulsating victory against Noir, the 23-year-old goes down in history as the 9th K’Ogalo player to ever score a brace in continental football.

And this is Kipkirui’s day as they took it to social media to shower their praise for the winger, admiring his strength, pace and how good he is at headers.

Check out some of their reactions;

Dif Madara@MadaraDifReplying to @FCGorMahia Am just surprised how good he is at headers despite being shorter than most center backs. They can form great partnership with Olunga. Olunga scores difficult goals, Kip uses his intelligent movements/instincts to score simplest goals. That’s a quality very few Strikers hv

David Ngoe@davebiggy91Replying to @FCGorMahia Should be leading National team attack alongside Olunga

dicarp@LSubaneseReplying to @FCGorMahia Improving day by day. Good at headers . The coach should take note

Brian Otango@brianotangoReplying to @FCGorMahia The guy can ran like a cheetah

The young Kenyan from the Rift joined the current Kenya Premier League leaders Gor Mahia on 28 October 2018, and has his contract with the green army until 30th June 2022 which is subject to an extension unless his impeccable form gets an abroad call.
