Otanga relishing KPL top scorer feat

  • Otanga endended the campaign on a high as he grabbed a brace against Bidco United to edge Clifton Miheso of Police FC who scored 15.

KCB forward Derrick Otanga is still celebrating winning the Kenya Premier League Golden Boot for his first time ever, as the 2021/22 season came to a close on Sunday.

The former Sony Sugar FC and Wazito FC marksman netted 16 times to emerge top, ending the campaign on a high as he grabbed a brace against Bidco United to edge Clifton Miheso of Police FC who scored 15.

Despite what has been an underwhelming season for the bankers, the striker walks home with the Golden Boot, his first in the top flight.

"I’m happy, it is a dream come true for me. I have always wanted to win the golden boot and I’m glad that I finally have one under my belt. Credit to my teammates for their help, I would not have achieved this without their help," he said.

He further thanked his teammates for the role they played in enabling him win the gong.

Otanga is however coy to talk about next season plans.

"We will see what happens next season because I still have a contract with KCB running," he said.

Last season, Erick Kapaito, who has since moved to Ethiopia, bagged it after scoring 24 league goals.
