Situma wishes Leopards well

12 January 2015, 12:03

Nairobi - James Situma admits failed communication between AFC Leopards' players and management had a big impact on his decision to depart the beleaguered KPL club.

Situma is one of several Ingwe players to have requested their contract with the team be terminated after going unpaid since October due to Leopards' non-compliance with tax regulation, which led to their accounts being frozen by the Kenyan Revenue Authority.

And while he is saddened to have departed the KPL giants in their time of need, Situma admits he had little choice but to seek employment elsewhere, with a six-month deal at Sofapaka believed to have been agreed.

"Deep inside, I feel bad leaving AFC Leopards," he said. "I played with all my heart and soul. My loyalty to the team was unquestionable. I have never missed a training session. Even when I was injured, I went for training and sat on the bench to watch my teammates training."

He continued: "I feel communication was the major obstacle. The management was not telling us what was happening. The team manager is supposed to be the bridge between the playing unit and the management but even he was in the dark.

"It has been a year of endurance, hard work and occasional setbacks. A time comes in one's life or career when you must open a new chapter.

"To my former team-mates I say a big thank you, for the support. It was at times challenging, but with the contribution of everyone, we were able to make a great impact."
