Victor Wanyama is a Kenyan professional footballer who has played as a defensive midfielder for various clubs and the Kenyan national team. He was born on June 25, 1991, in Nairobi, Kenya.
Wanyama began his professional career at the age of 15, playing for Kenyan Premier League club AFC Leopards.
He later moved to Belgium, where he played for Beerschot AC before moving to Scotland to play for Celtic in 2011.
He became a key player for the Scottish club, winning two Scottish Premier League titles and earning a reputation as a tough-tackling midfielder with a powerful shot.
In 2013, Wanyama moved to England to join Southampton, where he continued to impress with his strong defensive abilities and ball-winning skills.
He also showed an ability to contribute to the attack, scoring several goals for the club.
In 2016, Wanyama signed with Tottenham Hotspur for a reported fee of £11 million, becoming the first Kenyan to play in the English Premier League for the London club.
He played a key role in his first season, helping Spurs finish second in the league and reach the semi-finals of the UEFA Champions League.
However, injuries and competition for places limited his playing time in later seasons, and he left Tottenham in 2019 to join MLS side Montreal Impact.
Wanyama is also an important member of the Kenyan national team, having made over 60 appearances for his country since making his debut in 2007.
He is widely regarded as one of Kenya’s greatest ever footballers and has been praised for his leadership qualities both on and off the pitch.
