Kenyan midfielder Victor Wanyama has taken to address the viral video of him running in his innerwear after a game.

A video has been doing rounds on Tiktok showing Wanyama in his undies after CF Montreal’s 2-0 win over Charlotte on Sunday, May 15.

The midfielder looked like he was jogging back to the dressing room, but the fact that he had no shorts left his teammates in stitches.

Barely 48 hours after the funny incident and Wanyama has taken to social media to explain what transpired.

"A lot of fans have been asking if I gave out both my jersey and my shorts in the Charlotte game and the answer is yes.” He said.
“I gave one of the fans my jersey and while I was approaching the dressing room there was one elderly fan who approached me and told me he drove for seven hours to just come and see me and the team play so he would love to go back with any merchandise that he can remember. I said why not, he had sacrificed a lot to drive seven hours to come and watch us play and I decided to give him my shorts and he was very happy.”

It isn’t difficult to see why a fan would want Wanyama’s shirt, as the midfielder has become a household name since his move to Major League Soccer.

From midfield, he has scored four goals for his side, two coming in each of the last two seasons since joining the club.

On Sunday, he was making a return to the team after serving a suspension for picking up five yellow cards.

Montreal Impact started the season poorly, losing their opening three games, but the team has since gone on an eight-match unbeaten run.
