Kakamega Homeboyz coach Nicholas Muyoti wants striker Allan Wanga to stay on and help the team win the Football Kenya Federation Premier League (FKF-PL) title.
Muyoti said he was taken aback by the striker’s announcement three weeks ago that he will retire at the end of this season.
But Muyoti insists the striker still has a lot to offer. “Before the season started, we had an agreement with Wanga that he will only retire after he has helped us win the league title,” he explained.
He added:”I was a bit surprised therefore by his announcement recently and so it is something i have not accepted. He knows what we talked about and i want him to keep his word.”
“Obviously, there was no agreement written down between us but we discussed it and he knows it. In my mind, i have not accepted that announcement. If we win the league this season, then i will allow him to go but until then, he is still part of us.”
He described Wanga as a big inspiration to the other players since joining the team last season and believes they still need him for a while.
Wanga announced his retirement from active football three weeks ago pointing out that he wanted to concentrate on his job as a Sports Officer at the Kakamega County.
Apart from Kakamega Homeboyz, he has also played for Tusker and AFC Leopards in the local league. He also had stints in Angola , Baku and Vietnam.
