Wanyama recovering from infection



Kenyan midfielder Victor Wanyama is recuperating well from a throat infection.

Wanyama told supersport.com that he was under the observation of the team doctor and would be going back to training either on Friday this week or next week Monday.

He also took time to wish the Harambee Stars squad success as they meet Tanzania's Taifa stars in an international friendly on Wednesday in Mwanza.

"I contracted a throat infection after our match against Barcelona and so could not travel to Kenya. I am recuperating well under the watchful eyes of the team doctor and will be back in training either on Friday or next week Monday."

On reports linking him to Manchester United in the January transfer window Wanyama said, "I have also had of the sentiments just like you but let’s see how everything will turn out but for now my focus in on my team Celtic as we wait for January where I will be coming home for a week."

"I also want to wish my Kenyan teammates all the best when they clash with Tanzania on Wednesday I know they will perform well even in my absence," he added.
