FKFPL Cheche compares Kenneth Muguna to Real Madrid legends Toni Kroos and Luca Modric

Cheche, who has played with Muguna for both Police and Harambee Stars, has revealed why he thinks the former Gor Mahia captain is stylistically similar to Toni Kroos.

Kenya Police FC defender David ‘Cheche’ Ochieng has revealed why his teammate for both club and country, Kenneth Muguna is stylistically similar to Real Madrid’s Toni Kroos and former Inter Milan and Kenyan midfielder McDonald Mariga.

Both players were taking part in an 'Asking Teammates' challenge on Sports Eye Sports when they queried each other what qualities they bring to Kenya Police.

“The quality I think I bring to Kenya Police is leadership because I have been there and performed at the highest level so I know what it entails and what is needed in today’s game,” Muguna said when asked about what he brought to the team.

Cheche, however, took it a notch higher, showering him with praise and comparing him to some of football’s finest players.

“I think apart from leadership, I think the quality you bring is holisticness to the team, players who defend and attack well, the likes of (Luca) Modric,” Cheche said.

Cheche believes Muguna’s ability to dictate games is similar to Tony Kross’ style. He also namechecked McDonald Mariga.

“I think you impress me with your passing. I think I would compare you to Toni Kroos (as well) On a good day if you are told everything is about 100 percent passing, I think you are one of the few players in Kenya who can pass it well.

“I keep telling you that I see Mariga (MacDonald) in you because Mariga could pass a ball. Your passing, scoring, and ability to stay calm inside the box are things you need in a number 10.”

“Since this is my third team in the Kenyan Premier League, I think I achieved a lot with the last two teams, this season is a good season we have had.”

Muguna himself believes he has had a good start to life at Police individually despite the club’s collective inconsistency this year.

“What we expect this season is to finish top, which is number one. We have not achieved what we are aiming for.

“But I think I have done well for myself. You know the expectations at Police. To start at the club is not an easy task so I think my season has been okay.
