New Harambee Stars recruit Daniel Anyembe, who plays as a right-back for Danish Superliga club Viborg has expresses his excitement ahead of Iran fixture


Daniel Anyembe, born to a Kenyan father and a Danish mother was born and raised in Denmark. His whole career has been shaped abroad and the right back represented his country of birth at the youth level.

The 24-year-old right-back has noted that the Football Kenya Federation had attempted to lure him before and had been tracking his progress,

“The Federation contacted me a few years ago but I ran into an injury. Now this year we started talking again and I spoke to the coach. He called me and informed me of the project and he told me he had decided to have me. When he called, I was not in doubt that I was ready to come play for Kenya,

“He (Coach Firat) didn’t need to convince me much. He said he had been watching my game and liked how I play and he told me when I come here, I should express myself and be the player that he things I am and that I have the quality, but I have to show it.”

Anyembe will compete with Daniel Sakari of Tusker for the right-back starting position, while Coach Firat also occasionally used midfielder Amos Nondi in that position during his first four games.
