Gor Mahia CEO Omondi Aduda has advised Harambee Stars captain Victor Wanyama to ditch Tottenham Hotspur to save his career.

The 28-year-old fell out favour with former coach Mauricio Pochettino and now faces the same fate with new coach Jose Mourinho who has used him just once, in the 3-1 loss against Bayern Munich in the Champions League match played on December 11.

Wanyama has also been omitted from the Champions League squad and it seems his future is elsewhere.

“It is very clear now that [Wanyama] is not in the plans of Mourinho anymore if indeed he has omitted him from the Champions League squad,” Aduda is quoted by Goal.

“There is no more excuse now and what Wanyama should do is force a move away from the club and get playing time elsewhere.

“Victor should take a close look at his future and make a right decision, Kenya needs him for the Afcon and World Cup qualifiers and this might bring issues in the future if he doesn’t play regularly.”

The K’Ogalo official admits it will not be easy for the national team technical bench to consider someone who is frozen.

“Kenya coach Francis Kimanzi will have a difficult time of whether to call him for national team duty or not because it will not be easy to rely on a captain that is not playing for his club,” Aduda concluded.

Wanyama was signed for Spurs by Pochettino for £11.5million (Sh2 billion) in 2016 and made 47 appearances in his first season but only 24 the following term as his popularity under the Argentine dwindled.
