The financial problems could be a thing of the past if indeed the new owner Francis Mureithi will live his promises

Nakumatt is set for massive ‘big name’ recruitment during the June transfer window.

After last week takeover by business man Francis Mureithi, the club could be up again from its financial knees that led to disappointing player exodus at the beginning of the season.

The financial problems could be a thing of the past if indeed the new owner Mureithi will live his promises.

He has since vowed to shop big, in order to fill the shelves that were cleared by their league competitors.

“We want first to get quality players in the June transfer window so as to ensure the team remain in the league,” Mureithi told Goal.

He added that he is now in the business of motivating the current players in order to get good results from the remaining first leg matches. The former 'big money' club lost a couple of key players including skipper Peter Nzuki, who joined Tusker.

Top striker Kepha Aswani was lured by Sofapaka while speedy right back Nicholas Meja moved to Bandari.

After 11 rounds of KPL action, the Antony Mwangi coached side lies at the bottom of the table with seven points, managing only one win, losing six and drawing in four matches in process.
