Kakamega Homeboyz coach Mike Mururi stayed off the talks of the controversial sending off of his striker Wycliffe Ochomo in a loss to Gor Mahia last Saturday.

Ochomo was controversial given his marching orders in Homeboyz’ 1-0 lose to the new champions.

Despite Gor Mahia coach, Dylan Kerr coming out to condemn the referee judgment against Ochomo, Mururi kept off the talks and instead opted to praise the fighting spirit of his players.

“I am satisfied with their output,” Mururi said despite his side missing a penalty early in the first half.

“This was a big game and the boys played very well. I understand the intrigues that go on in the players’ minds when they are playing a team like Gor Mahia so for today I will forgive their lack of sharpness in front of goal.

“In fact, I believe they deserve praise for holding strong in the second half when we had to play one man less,” added Mururi, who was quoted by KPL official website.
