Kenya Police now regrets after sudden disappearance of DuKe Abuya
Kenya Police FC head coach Sammy Omollo is furious with the departure of midfielder Duke Abuya who is said to have moved to Tanzania, saying his departure leaves a bitter taste on his mouth.
Omollo whose galactico side started their FKF Premier League campaign with a slim 1-0 defeat at the hands of KCB last Saturday says he had built his team around the midfielder, but his departure now means he has to revise his plans.
“I didn’t know that he (Duke) was leaving and I am not sure even if the office knew. In pre-season I had built the team around the boy and even in our last friendly match against Tusker he scored. It is a very big let up for me and I wish I knew he was not going to be part of the team then I would have built the team around someone else,” the tactician said.
ABuya is said to have travelled to Tanzania to seal a move to SIngida Big Stars after the move earlier on in August fell through. However, the manner of the departure has left Omollo with a huge headache.
He says the absence of Abuya, and then Patillah Omotto’s due to injury in the game against KCB cost his side a fluid display.
“If I had three midfielders especially Patillah and Duke, then we would have been a stronger team. I built my play around the midfield and without those two we didn’t look strong,” the coach said.
Omotto, signed in pre-season from Kariobangi Sharks picked an injury during the last training before the match against KCB, but the coach is optimistic he will be back in time. Against KCB, right back Baraka Badi also picked up an injury forcing him out.
The team is also missing the services of striker David Okoth, signed in pre-season from Kakamega Homeboyz.
