Kakamega Homeboyz head coach Nicholas Muyoti says the decision to end the league due to Corona pandemic cut short his dream of winning the league title, his first as a coach and for the club too.

By the time the competition was halted, Homeboyz were second on the league table on 47 points with a game in hand, seven behind leaders Gor Mahia. This was the closest the club had come to bagging the elusive gong having finished at position seven in the preceding season.

“We were quite disappointed. Actually, this season, our focus was to make sure we win the title but all said and done we are still focused. If the league is going to resume or not we will be ready for anything,” Muyoti noted.

At the same time Muyoti reckons they are yet to start negotiations with players they would want to bring on board to bolster the squad as none has been released ahead of the transfer window.

“There are a number of players that their contract have ended and some are about to end so we need to get into negotiations with them and we also don’t know if other teams are interested in them,” he added.

As the club awaits a directive from KPL on the way forward, Muyoti says he’s open-minded and will take whichever decision is made in his stride.

“I am already preparing my program for next season as we  await direction from the club to start pre-season training. My players and I are ready and I’ve told them if we are going for the preseason they should be ready and if the league is going to resume they should be ready for that too,” Muyoti told Citizen Digital.

FKF and KPL are locked in a bitter war of words following the former’s decision to end the competition.
