Sofapaka looking depleted

19 June 2015, 12:02

Nairobi - Sofapaka's chances of catching Gor Mahia have taken a huge knock during the June transfer window with as many as six players leaving the club in recent weeks.

Batoto ba Mungu impressively clung on to second place in the Kenya Premier League in the first half of the 2015 season, despite being crippled by financial constraints.

Reports have emerged suggesting the technical and playing staff are owed several months worth of salaries and bonuses, and the exodus during the transfer window was expected.

So far the club has parted ways with no less than six key players, including Enock Agwanda to Gor Mahia, Elly Asieche to KCB, Eugine Asike and Danson Kago to Tusker FC, Fiston Abduol Razak to South Africa's Mamelodi Sundowns and, most recently, Shafik Batambuze to Chemelil Sugar on loan.

Head coach Sam Timbe is also expected to leave the club in the coming months after refusing to extend his contract.

Team manager Amenipa Bigisho has promised the club will bring in players to replace the personnel they have lost, but the situation looks increasingly dire.

"It is a fact that we have lost key players during the window but the club will try hard to ensure a recovery is made," he told Futaa.

"We are really planning to bring in players to replace the ones who have exited."
