Kiplangat vows to keep going



Despite suffering the chop for the second year in succession, John Kiplangat is still confident that he can compete in the top tier of Kenyan football.

Kiplangat was shown the door by SoNy Sugar at the end of the 2012 season after an inconsistent campaign, blighted by injury and poor form.

The year followed a similar script to 2011 where Gor Mahia gave him the boot, deeming the winger surplus to requirements. Kiplangat, however, is not giving up on his career and has faith he will bounce back in good time.

“It is sad to leave a club that you like but it is football,” said Kiplangat. “Last year I left Gor Mahia and this year SoNy Sugar, so I am getting used to it. ” However, I am still keen on playing the game and to prove that I can perform at a good level.

“Last season I did not settle well at SoNy because of injury and many other issues, but that is that. “It is over and I have to look elsewhere.”

Regarding his future, he said: “I have no idea what will go on and I am still relaxed about it. Once the new year comes I will see how to move ahead and plan for the future. I am confident that I will get a place where I can play again. We will see where I will end up.”

Kiplangat scored once for SoNy in the recently concluded term.
