CAPE TOWN - The head coach of a major Kenyan soccer team has slammed Kaizer Chiefs for their “illegal” approach of one of his defenders and threatened to report both to Fifa.
Following accusations that Chiefs had approached Godfrey Walusimbi without first contacting his club, the Soweto side confirmed on Monday that Uganda International defender was indeed at Naturena. Now, Dylan Kerr, the head coach of Gor Mahia, has slammed AmaKhosi and Walusimbi and accused the player of letting down his teammates and fans.
“My club will never stand in a player’s way of moving, that’s their philosophy, but what has to be done right is the approach of any player. My issue is that Walusimbi’s agents have acted inappropriately, dishonestly and sneakily,” Kerr told Soccer Laduma.
“Kaizer Chiefs have acted illegally, and they know they have done wrong, but my concern is how a player, my player, thinks that he has the right to just up and go to another team fully knowing that he is contracted to the club.
“This is the second time that he’s acted selfishly, thinking about himself and not his club, the fans, but even more so, his teammates. In CAF (Champions League) he may have contributed to our defeat against Esperance (In March) by not playing, and now - with us needing three wins to retain the league title, and we also have the Confederation Cup still to qualify – he’s taken upon himself to just leave without my permission.
