Zoo FC chairman Ken Ochieng says the club will consult its lawyers for advice following their suspension from the Football Kenya Federation Premier League (FKF-PL).

FKF said yesterday it was suspending Zoo and Mathare United after the two clubs failed to sign the StarTimes endorsement deal unveiled last month by federation boss Nick Mwendwa.

Ochieng said FKF ignored their idea of seeking an independent body to clarify who owns the broadcast rights.

They two were given 48 hours to change their stance or be expelled altogether with Ulinzi Stars, who have also not signed the deal, were given until Monday.

“We have not refused to sign the deal all we are asking for is clarity on who owns the broadcast rights, whether it is the club or the federation,” Ochieng said.

The two clubs have until Friday, December 11 at 5pm to sign the endorsement, failure to which the matter will be referred to the federation’s General Congress, in February 2021.
