Homeboyz attacking midfielder Thiong’o is going nowhere as Shimanyula reveals Ingwe cannot afford to sign him
- Kakamega Homeboyz chairman Cleophas Shimanyula reveals their attacking midfielder Peter Thiong’o will not leave the club in this transfer window, taken a swipe at AFC for their repeated declaration they are keen to sign.
The attacking midfielder has openly stated on many occasions that he would love to leave Homeboyz for a new challenge Shimanyula has confirmed Thiong’o is a Homeboyz player.
Despite Ingwe declaring that they are keen to acquire his services, Shimanyula has revealed that AFC leopards cannot afford him, went on further to accuse Ingwe of unsettling the player.
“AFC Leopards are simply broke and cannot afford to buy peter they should try to sign players from elsewhere, they don’t have money to pay for the player and we all know they are struggling financially,” Shimanyula said.
“The problem with Thiong’o is that he is a young boy who has gotten carried away with telling his stories to the media, I guess he likes to be seen in the newspapers and online all the time, he has not approached us that he wants to leave and I don’t think he will leave this season,” he added.
“I have just seen rumors AFC Leopards are interested but honestly speaking, they don’t have money to pay for his services, I know they cannot afford him so we should not discuss the player anyway,” the Homeboyz boss said.
Meanwhile, Tusker defender Eugene Asike has revealed how he misses football action since the Kenyan Premier League (KPL) was suspended due to the coronavirus.
