The Fifa Ethics Committee has opened investigations on three Kenyan Premier League (KPL) clubs over alleged irregularities on past player transfers, Feverpitch can reveal.
Former Gor Mahia FC coach Frank Nuttall who won Kenya Premier league 2014/15 season unbeaten with the club has joined Ghanaian Premier League side Hearts of Oak ahead of the start of the new season.
In the wake of the implementation of the club licensing rules, Kenyan teams have been put in the spotlight over mistreatment of players. A 230-page report by world player’s union FIFPRO accuses local clubs of disrespecting player contracts and firing them without any compensation.
Football Kenya Federation postpone start of Kenyan Premier League
When the history of how Gor Mahia came from the doldrums to return to the top is written, one player will not miss a mention - Fredrick Jerim Onyango, popularly known as ‘King Jerry’.
Football Kenya Federation (FKF) says the composition of the top tier league will not change next season despite a court ruling allowing discussions on how to expand the competition.
