With 18 matches gone, the Kenyan Premier League is becoming even tougher as teams fight to either win the league or avoid relegation.
Sofapaka failed to win their third match in a row last Wednesday after going down 2-0 to Mathare United at Nyayo Stadium.
Eight points lost
It meant that Sofapaka have so far collected only one point out of a possible nine a situation that precipitated a crisis at the club.
Club chairman Elly Kalekwa on Monday put Ali and the entire technical bench on notice insisting that there must be improvement in the next match or they may face the sack.
Kalekwa spoke a day after meeting the entire playing unit to discuss the poor results at the club.
“We met with the players and they apologised for their poor performance and promised to do better. We cannot allow this situation to continue and I am insisting that there must be improvement or else heads will roll,” he said.
Kalekwa said he has invested so much in the team and cannot therefore allow the poor performance to continue.
He dismissed reports that players have not been paid for the last three months and this may have affected their performance.
“We owe them only one month salary arrears and that is for June and this has already been cleared and there are records to that effect. In the past I have even advised the office to pay them when they have lost matches and so the question of the club owing does not arise,”
