Speaking about the accolade, Meja told the club’s official portal: “I am thankful to be awarded. The coach believed in me and gave me the chance and I took it with both hands and gave 100pc. The coach believed in me and I am glad that belief has paid off.”
On his part, Asike said: “I feel very delighted about it, but I believe it is team effort, I believe we are all winners. It is a good gesture and this makes me feel motivated going forward. Seeing the executive office come here to appreciate the work we are doing and appreciate the team brings good energy into the camp,” Asike, also the assistant captain stated.
Apart from Meja and Asike, the previous recipients of the award this season have been Henry Meja and Jackson Macharia.
