Wanyama wants end to dispute

27 February 2015, 14:06

Nairobi - Victor Wanyama has urged the Kenyan Football Federation to end the disagreement over the administration of the Kenya Premier League.

The FKF have created their own national league following a bitter dispute with the current league administrators, the KPL, as to who should run the existing Kenyan top-flight.

Despite the controversy, the KPL have commenced league fixtures as planned, prompting threats from FIFA secretary general Jerome Valke to ban football in Kenya until the issue is resolved, saying: "We are not going to allow two leagues in the country."

Wanyama has expressed his disappointment at the situation and has called on the two bodies to reach a compromise on an issue he feels could derail a number of Kenyan players' careers.

"That's for the federation if the league has to be extended," the Southampton man is quoted as saying by Goal.

"But I think they just have to stop the wrangling because they think too much about themselves and they should now try to think about the young players coming up and the players who are playing football to earn their living.

"They should think about that as well, not just thinking about themselves.

"If football is banned in Kenya, they don't lose but they should understand that football is a job for a lot of people. If Fifa now bans Kenya then a lot of people would lose their jobs."
