Kenya Gitego opens up on his impressive form with AFC Leopards

Rwanda striker Arthur Gitego has reflected on reasons behind his scintillating form in Kenya as he continues to settle for life at FKF Premier League outfit AFC Leopards.

The Rwanda international has had a bright start for Ingwe since his two-year move from Marines in February, scoring four goals in his last two games. He netted a hat trick in the Mozzart Bet Cup fixture against minnows PAC University before putting in a man-of-the-match display from which he scored in Leopards’ 2-0 victory over Nzoia Sugar in the league on Sunday.

Gitego told Times Sport things are working for him in Kenya because he changed his mindset. “I have scored four goals in two games which is an extraordinary start for me and I look forward to banging in more goals,” he said, adding: “The secret is that I changed my mentality and life program. Now I am only focused on one thing which is football and I am going all out.”

The former Marines forward had as many as three offers in the January transfer window from a host of foreign teams including FC Gagra in Georgia, FC Shkupi in Macedonia as well as AFC Leopards in Kenya before opting for the latter.
