The current AFC Leopards U-20 coach says the two bodies should be focused on helping players grow in all aspects and whoever wins, the main agenda should be the players welfare. "According to me, it is not about FKF or KPL. It is not about who won this battle or that but it is all about Kenyan football and the Kenyan player.

"The issue of Nick Mwendwa or Jack Oguda, won this and that battle in courts or tribunals to me is not important. What is important is the development of our football. That is where the focus should be. The number of teams in KPL does not matter as long as things are in order and that is my prayer.

"The two parties should come into agreement. If the league is run well then it even does not matter how many teams should be in the league. Ages back we used to have 20 teams in the league and even wihout sponsorship all was well, it is all about proper management of the clubs."

Currently the top tier has fifteen teams after the demotion of Thika United, Muhoroni Youth and Sofapaka.
