Five more players have terminated their contracts with Chemelil Sugar as reality checks in at the Milling camp with reports of delayed salaries yet to be settled.
Chemelil Sugar have not paid their players for the last eleven months and Goal can authoritatively report that the upto nine players have since terminated their engagements with the broke Kenyan Premier League side.
Goal exclusively reported the exit of Collins Neto, Ken Owino, Yusuf Juma and Nigerian Abdul Hillary six days ago and the quartet has since been joined by Faraj Ominde, assistant captain Benjamin Oketch, Benny Mwamlangala and Maxwell Onyango.
According to a highly placed source, who spoke to Goal, the group has since handed in their termination letters as the management remains mum on the poignant issue of settling players' arrears.
“The players have left and we are not sure whether some will rescind their decision. If they don’t, then that will be so serious because am not sure if we can attract good players in the June window with the events going on here. We still remain hopeful that things will be sorted out.”
If the issue is not sorted out in time, the exit will leave Chemelil Sugar with a lean squad that may also jeopardize the club's chances of honoring their league matches.
