Homeboyz striker putting trust in God after perfect start

Maxwell Ravel has found the back of the net twice already in his first time at the top level and the Congolese forward- playing for Kakamega Homeboyz, says it's not an easy league the Kenyan top flight.


Ravel, roped in from Ushuru FC in the division below, struck the only goal for Paul Nkata's side on the opening day against Kenya Commercial Bank and also grabbed one as AFC Leopards fell 3-0 at the Bukhungu Stadium last week. He says his secret is God.

''I don't know anything, my secret lies in God. I trust in Him because He has put me here and it is only Him who can place you on top,'' he tells Soka in an interview.

Having made the tiresome climb up the lower divisions of Kenyan football, the lanky forward delights in his playing time at Homeboyz saying he left Ushuru with the blessings of coach Kenyatta Ken.

''Homeboyz saw me playing for Ushuru FC and asked my coach if I can join them. They both agreed and that is how I came here. Before Ushuru, I used to play for Kenyatta National Hospital in division 2,'' continues Ravel.

With two goals in two matches however, he says it's too early to call the Kenyan Premier League easy. There are plenty of matches to come and only after playing those can he make a judgement.

''We are just getting started and no one can say any league is easy. For me, I like to score and if God allows me I will score as many goals as I can, whatever He offers, I will accept,'' he concludes.

Next Up

Homeboyz's next stop takes them to Kisumu where they take on Western Stima, a side that has similarly won two out of two matches. For a side that beat them twice in the pre-season, Nkata's side will have to be wary of coach Paul Ogai's outfit that wins by solitary goal margins.
