Oliech hits out at Nyamweya for football mess

24 February 2015, 18:47

Nairobi - Former Harambee Stars captain Dennis Oliech has heavily criticised FKF President Sam Nyamweya following a shambolic start to the Premier League season.

His comments come after Nyamweya disagreed with the league's administrators, the KPL, over how many teams should participate in the country's top flight and went to court to prevent the league from commencing this weekend.

Despite his best efforts, the league schedule went ahead as planned but Nyamweya has said the Football Association will be starting a separate league.

And Oliech, who currently plays for Ajaccio in France, believes an administration with Nyamweya at the head could spell disaster for the League and has urged all the teams involved to issue a prompt injunction to prevent him taking over.

"Yes we know Sam Nyamweya is the Football Kenya Federation President but we all remember he was part of the group that endorsed KPL," the 30-year-old striker is quoted as saying by African Football.

"What has changed now? I can say categorically on behalf of footballers that no one amongst us would wish for the FA or Nyamweya to run the League not even the fans because that will be the start of problems.

"They clearly know how the Federation has previously behaved with players’ money. I am totally against the FA running the League and I take this opportunity to urge all the teams to ask their Captains and even former footballers to meet on Monday for a press conference to demand for action."
