The Cypriot coach has maintained his stand that Nicholas Kipkirui, Kenneth Muguna, captain Harun Shakava and Samuel Onyango – should all be going to Egypt.
“I said it before and will still repeat the same, Nicholas Kipkirui and Kenneth Muguna are good players who deserve to be in the national team. Captain Harun Shakava is also on form and should be in the squad. I don’t know why they are not included in the squad,” Oktay told Goal in an exclusive interview.
“Look, like for Kipkirui he deserves to be in the U23 squad and now he has already matured and can feature for the senior team. Samuel Onyango is also having a season of his life and deserves to be considered. I am not defending them because they are Gor Mahia players, but because they deserve to be in the squad.”
Kipkirui grabbed a brace while Rwandan striker Jacques Tuyisenge popped up with a third as K’Ogalo maintained their dominance of Ingwe and inched them closer to retaining the Kenyan Premier League (KPL) title.
Kenya have been drawn in Group C at the Africa Cup of Nations, which kicks off on June 21.
