Shabana FC coach Sammy Okoth on Sunday finally threw in the towel after they lost 4-0 to Ulinzi Stars in a Football Kenya Federation Premier League match at the Ulinzi Sports Complex, Nairobi.
“In my coaching life I’ve never been disappointed like today. We’ve been playing and sometimes losing, but we’ve never been humiliated this way.
I’ve tried my best, bringing this team from the National Super League (NSL), emerging champions. I thank the fans who have been turning up in large numbers, and they should not be discouraged by today’s results,”Okoth said.
Shabana have garnered seven points with their only victory since their promotion being a 1-0 triumph over Tusker at Moi International Sports Center Kasarani on October 6.
They have lost three and drawn four.Okoth had hinted at resigning on September 23 after they lost 1-0 to Kariobangi Sharks at the Raila Odinga Stadium in Homa Bay County.
Ulinzi Stars Antony Kimani was over the moon after the emphatic win.”We started the season badly, but the players have started picking up.
I tried new tricks that had worked for us. Today we have been able to utilise our chances. We had the composure. Just like any other team, we want to win the league title.”
Ulinzi Stars goals were scored by Bonvanger Muchika (29), Mark Bikokwa (38′) and Enosh Ochieng (51′, 63′).
