Despite being relegated from the Kenyan Premier League (KPL), Mount Kenya head coach Melis Medo has lambasted the levels of the Kenyan top flight.
Medo’s team will be joined by Vihiga United in the National Super League (NSL) next season and despite a turbulent season that has seen his team dish two walkovers, the coach believes they play a brand of football that was not exhibited by any team in the division.
“We play good football and I can tell you that KPL will miss a team like this. There is no power play in the KPL and you wonder why you doing badly at international level.
“Look at the teams from number two to number nine and the midfielders are all going for all second balls (that’s not something you’ll see in my team). You people need to think again (about the KPL levels),” Medo said after their weekend game against Kariobangi Sharks.
The coach further confirmed that he was already in talks with two clubs and couldn’t see himself in the NSL next season despite the love he has for the team.
“I have calls from big clubs. If you know me you know me. Everyone knows what I can do. To be sincere I don’t see myself in the NSL. I love this group but I don’t think I’ll continue here.
“I need money to survive until a new club comes. I am forced to ask for money from my family and friends to keep me going here until a club comes for my signature. It can’t get worse than this,” Medo added.
Mount Kenya will finish their season with a tie against Ulinzi Stars on Wednesday.
