by admin

In the world of football, a new star is emerging from the heart of Kenya, capturing the attention of fans and scouts alike with his extraordinary skills and determination.

Seventeen-year-old Aldrine Kibet has taken the football scene by storm, leaving an indelible mark on the recently concluded high school games at the Bukhungu Stadium in Kakamega County.

Hailing from St. Anthony Boys, Kibet’s journey to football stardom has been nothing short of inspiring. Throughout the National Secondary Schools football competition, Kibet showcased his incredible prowess as a Centre Forward, delivering an impressive performance that saw him netting 25 goals and assisting his teammates on 27 occasions.

This remarkable tally of 42 goals and assists combined not only secured victory for his team but also earned him the coveted title of the competition’s Most Valuable Player.

Kibet’s exceptional abilities go beyond statistics; they encompass a unique blend of speed, intricate dribbling skills, and a precise shooting technique that has left spectators and experts alike in awe. As the Kenyan football scene buzzes with excitement over his potential, foreign scouting clubs have taken notice, drawn by Kibet’s promise and innate talent.

News of Kibet’s impending journey to a second-division club in Madrid, Spain, has ignited speculation and anticipation.

While the specific club’s name remains undisclosed, Kibet’s dedication and ambition are clear. He is set to join the club’s U-18 squad with aspirations of making his mark and progressing to the U-23 team.

With a heart full of dreams and a spirit unyielding, Kibet envisions a future that transcends borders.

In a recent post-match interview, he boldly declared, “One day, I will help Arsenal win the league.” This audacious proclamation not only reflects his unshakable confidence but also underscores his aspirations to leave an indelible mark on the global football stage.

Kibet’s journey began long before the spotlight found him. Nicknamed ‘Messi’ by his teammates during his formative years, he chose to relinquish the moniker upon entering high school, opting instead to carve out his own identity in the sport.

The decision reflects his determination to forge a legacy uniquely his own, while also paying homage to his idol, Lionel Messi.

The young prodigy’s rise has not gone unnoticed by prominent figures within Kenya and beyond. H.E President William Ruto, CS Youth Affairs Ababu Namwamba, and Trans Nzoia Governor George Natembeya have all acknowledged his potential and dedication.

Kibet’s encounters with football legends like Victor Wanyama, McDonald Mariga, and Nigerian striker Yakubu Aiyegbeni have further fueled his aspirations, offering a glimpse of the heights he hopes to reach.
