Owuor cries foul over axing

15 July 2014, 21:07

Nairobi - Former KCB captain Benedict Owuor has blasted the Bankers for their decision to release him on the final day of the June transfer window.

Owuor is currently sidelined by a knee injury, which he suffered in the 3-2 defeat by Gor Mahia in April and is set to undergo an operation.

The 26-year-old expressed his frustration that the club elected not to renew his contract while he out is injured.

"The manner in which I was released is very unfair. Despite serving the club for all those years, this is how the management can reward me," the former KCB captain told The Standard.

"My contract was due to expire on June 30, but I was short-changed as both of us had agreed to renew it. I was shocked when the coach informed me about my sacking on the transfer deadline day.

"I understand, the club is in a critical condition but that doesn't mean with my injury I wouldn't be useful to the team.

"Right now I am a free agent, I'm supposed to undergo a surgery in the next few weeks, but where will I get the money for the exercise?

"I sustained this injury in the line of duty, but the club officials have neglected me as they've failed to live up to their medical assistance promises," he concluded.
