Kenyan midfielder Victor Wanywma has described his Tottenham Hotspur team’s 2-0 defeat to Liverpool in the Champion’s League Final in Madrid on Saturday night as ‘a bad day at the office’.

Wanyama was aiming to make history if Spurs had won by becoming the second player from the East African region to lift the trophy, following in the footsteps of his elder brother Macdonald Mariga, who became the first while playing for Inter Milan in 2010.

The midfielder, who was named as a substitute but played no active part in the game, made his comment on his Facebook page following the final whistle.

Bad day in the office 😥😑

Wanyama will now turn his attention to helping Kenya’s Harambee Stars at the Africa Cup of Nations final, set to kick off on June 21 in Egypt.

The Kenyan team arrived safely in France on Friday for a 19-day training session at the French Rugby Federation, Marcoussis Cedex, before heading to Egypt for the tournament.

As part of their preparations, the Kenyans will play two friendly matches, against Madagascar in Paris and the Democratic Republic of Congo in Madrid.

Kenya have been drawn in Group C at the Africa Cup of Nations, which kicks off on June 21 and will begin their campaign against Algeria, before meeting Tanzania and Senegal as they look to reach the knockout stages.
