Just a week after signing for FFK Premier League rivals Kenya Police FC, Kakamega Homeboyz team manager, Boniface Imbenzi, has come out to explain why they released David Okoth.
The forward produced an impressive form last season scoring 11 goals while helping Homeboyz finish second in the 2021/22 FKF Premier League season. Okoth was among the four players unveiled by Police FC on Tuesday of last week including Patilah Omoto, Baraka Badi and Reagan Otieno.
After push and pull between Homeboyz and Police FC, the Abana Baingo finally reached an agreement with the law enforcers for the deadly forward’s signature.
According to Imbenzi, they could not resist the good offer on the table from Police FC.
“He had three years remaining on his contract and was our first team player. However, as you know very well when a team like Police approaches you as a player and tells you they want to offer you employment then that is very important,” he told Citizen Sport as quoted by Mozzart Sport.
Homeboyz could lose a host of their first team players like Sylvester Owino, Moses Mudavadi, and Brian Eshihanda among others who are closely monitored by top flight clubs but Imbenzi insist they are not ready to open talks.
“We received requests from other clubs interested in signing our players but David Okoth is the only player we opened an exit door for him to join Police FC,” he concluded.
