Timona an experienced player who has won the KPL title on two occasions with Gor Mahia FC in 2013 and Tusker Fc three years later believes that despite a relatively  younger squad, the team has what it takes to give the established top tier clubs a run for their money in their debut campaign.

‘’Fortune Sacco is a younger team but with full of energy, its our first time in KPL but for me as a player who is experienced I will share my experience  which I believe could be critical to the teams achievement in the top tier league. Without this club I wouldn’t have my career roaring again,I want to give it all my best, I want to win the KPL title with this team’’, remarked Wanyonyi in an interview with KBC Digital Sports.

The winger  was discovered by Qatar based Aspire Academy  whom he went to spend four years  with between 2009-2013, honing his footballing skills, coming back to Kenya thereafter where he joined record 19-time KPL champions Gor Mahia in June 2013 to June 2014 before crossing over to sworn rivals AFC Leopards in a lucrative one year deal that was however short-lived.
