Victor Wanyama Lost in Translation ?

This is the second time in a week I have read that Victor is ready to move south. It has cropped up on the Tribal Football. My personal opinion is that site is constantly full of nonsense half backed stories. So this morning I decided to see where they had picked the story up from and guess what it was a Scottish Chip paper which is as reliable as source as Tribal Football..
I read the article in which Victor is quoted as saying:
“I think the Premiership is the dream of so many players, so I’d be happy to play there. There are a lot of good clubs in England.
“It will be difficult to leave Celtic because I have just had a good season here and we are now playing in the Champions League.
“Celtic are one of the biggest teams. I’ve been happy here, and the fans have been brilliant to me.
“But it would not be a terrible thing for me if the club agree to let me go, and they were to get a good offer. They are the ones who decide.
“I’m proud I’m the first Kenyan to play in the UK and I’d be very happy to be the first Kenyan to play in the Premier League.”
Now if you start to read between the lines this is your typical big stirring wooden spoon story that the MSM in Scotland constantly churn out every season about anyone who has signed for Celtic and became a success afterall according to the same rags Izzy and Kayal should have left us last season.
As for Victor’s quotes well I would put them down to the usual agent trying to get a better deal for him and his player. The story it’s self is not attributed to any media source in this country therefore there is something probably lost in translation.
Victor Wanyama will leave Celtic at one point but it won’t be this season when he has the chance to put himself in the shop window of the Champions league. As for the clubs who are ‘keen’ on signing Victor Newcastle United, QPR, Stoke and Swansea City well he won’t be playing Champions league football with any of those clubs so I think it’s safe to say Victor will still be playing at Celtic next season.

  1. Or maybe he’ll see how we get on in the qualifier, and stay (at least till Christmas) if we get into the group stage? Who knows how the mind of someone such as Victor works, but he’s not been with us long enough to develop a real love for the club, and the lure of the PL could be too much. A great talent he remains, and maybe we were only ever a short term stepping stone for him?!

    1. I’ve no doubt we are just a stepping stone, not only for Victor but Kayal, Izzy and others who will join us. Unfortunately this will be the case for the long term future until we either establish ourselves as a regular last 16 CL club or a new Euro league can be formed. The passed few months have shown up mess that our game in Scotland is.
      I’ll wish Victor and the rest all the best when they go but I would like at least another season with him.
