SKC's Olum revels in becoming first Kenyan to win MLS Cup

Sporting Kansas City defender/midfielder Lawrence Olum admitted it was a great thrill to become the first Kenyan player to win the MLS Cup.

The 29-year old was a part of the SKC squad which beat Real Salt Lake on penalties in the MLS Cup final in December, coming on in the eighth minute to replace Oriol Rosell, and was chuffed to have played such a significant part on the triumph.

When quizzed on the bets moment of his career thus far, Olum told supersport.com: "My highlights have been winning the MLS cup which we did last year and the Us Open cup in 2012, it's one of the oldest trophies in the US.

"It's a feeling you can't describe (winning the MLS Cup). It was a lot of mixed emotions going on at the same time.

"At the end of it all it was a feeling of joy that we had won the MLS Cup."
