Muhoroni Youth FC Chairman Moses Adagala has insisted that the club will remain in the top flight in 2017 and it will not be distracted despite the Top 8 Cup holders being relegated to the second tier after failing to comply with FIFA Club licensing requirements.
On Monday 9 January 2017 afternoon, Football Kenya Federation President Nick Mwendwa announced the teams that have been dropped tothe second tier [Thika United, Sofapaka and Muhoroni Youth].
However, this has left a bitter taste on Adagala’s mouth noting that the FKF should not use the club to settle its scores with the Kenya Premier League adding that there is nowhere in a circular from CAF that indicates a club will be relegated if it does not meet the licensing requirments
-This club will play in KPL in 2017. FKF should not use this club to settle its score’s with KPL. We are preparing for 2017 and we will not be distracted. The circular from CAF is clear. It doesn’t state anywhere that a team will be relegated if it does not meet the club licensing requirements, he said.
Muhoroni Youth finished at position ten last season.
