KENYA tactician Zedekiah “Zico” Otieno has taken a swipe at the Kenya Premier League (KPL) accusing its officials of being “unpatriotic” for refusing to adjust league fixtures to accommodate Nations Cup preparations.
“What they are doing is wrong. Why are they having these fixtures when they know we have a very crucial match? It is the last match that we have to prepare for well and win and we need all the support that we can get,” said Otieno.
This followed KPL’s refusal to reschedule three matches this week: Mathare v Congo United, Sofapaka v Bandari and Gor Mahia v AFC Leopards.
Otieno, who has been under fire from both his club duties at Gor Mahia and the national team, will have to endure another tormenting moment when his side takes on rivals AFC Leopards in a local derby on Sunday.
