Former champs Sofapaka axe four players for alleged indiscipline and poor form

Sofapaka chairman Elly Kalekwa reveals to Kenya that the four players have been shown the door owing to indiscipline and poor form
Former Kenyan Premier League (KPL) champions Sofapaka have dropped four players due to indiscipline and poor form.

The biggest casualty of the chop is former Gor Mahia midfielder Collins "Gatusso" Okoth who has had disciplinary issues with various clubs in the country.

Sofapaka chairman Elly Kalekwa exclusively revealed to Kenya that the player is no longer in coach Stewart Hall's plans following incidences of indiscipline.

"Last week when we were preparing to play Western Stima he was in the second team to encourage him to work harder but he apparently took offense and left the training."

"After the game we were supposed to train on Saturday but he failed to turn up for training. The coach has made the decision that he is no longer required and as asked that he be released without any conditions."

Apart from Okoth, others who have been dropped are, Kanamuli Kapilima, Hashim Mukhwana and Hakim Ssekumba. Sofapaka's new coach Hall seems to have borrowed a leaf from another foreign tactician Zdravko Logarusic, who immediately after joining Gor Mahia, fired a number of players.

Hall joined Sofapaka as a replacement of sacked Salim Ali but he his yet to win a single match. Sofapaka play Oserian in their next league fixture on Sunday.
