The former Chemelil tactician reveals to Goal that he will not part ways with Homeboyz despite the team being relegated from top flight
Kakamega Homeboyz coach Edward Manoah has vowed to stick with the team despite being relegated from top flight.
Homeboyz lost 2-1 to AFC Leopards’ on Saturday to end their hopes of remaining in the league. “I have made a covenant with the players that I will not leave them even if I get an offer of millions.
“These are young players I have mentored and even if they have been relegated, I am not ready to drop them. We have been with them in sad times and I also want to be with them in happy times,” Manoah told Goal.
Manoah says he is confident that they will make a quick comeback to the premier, only if they keep the squad and the management sponsors them with the same vigor.
“If we can manage to keep the players that we have and the management also do their part in continuing to sponsor us, we will be back in the league. These are very good players and we will fight hard to get back to top flight.”
He lauded the players for their gallant show in fighting against relegation, noting that they showed a lot of commitment.
“They have worked hard and have been determined all through. Everyone has seen their abilities and being young boys, give them two or three years and we will have the best players from here in the country.
“I want to urge the boys to keep their heads up as we map out a way to be a strong side in the Division one league and come back to the premier league.”
