Wanyama a 'fighter and warrior' - Al Duhail SC's Olunga leads tributes for retired ex-Kenya captain

The former skipper announced he was hanging up his international boots after being part of the national side for over a decade

Harambee Stars captain Michael Olunga has paid a glowing tribute to his former teammate Victor Wanyama, who announced his retirement on Monday.

Olunga has described the CF Montreal midfielder as a warrior and a leader who inspired the players in a big way. Wanyama retired after he was overlooked on a number of occasions for the national duties under former coach Jacob 'Ghost' Mulee.

The former Celtic star also lost the captain's armband to Olunga.
