Overconfidence is to blame for Kakamega Homeboyz lose against Nakumatt FC, coach Mike Mururi thinks.
Kepha Aswani’s second-half brace handed Kakamega Homeboyz a 2-1 defeat on Sunday at Mumias Complex, a result that left coach Mururi pointing an accusing finger at his players’ 'bloated ego' prior to the match.
“We really expected to collect all three points. But this is football and you learn the lesson, you underestimate your opponent at your own peril,” said Mururi in a post-match interview with KPL website.
“It is devastating to lose the match when the league is coming to a close and we are in such an excellent position to challenge for top honours.”
Nakumatt are 11th with 33 points while Homeboyz have 45 points.
