Former Kenyan international Collins Gatusso Okoth has decided to hang his boots, two days after a short frustrating spell at the 2009 Tusker Premier League (TPL) champions Sofapaka came to a close.
The midfielder was one of the four dropped players by the newly appointed Sofapaka coach Stewart Hall in what was cited as poor performance and indiscipline and he says he has seen enough frustrations in Kenyan football.
The former Gor Mahia midfield kingpin has now turned to the world of academia to provide his daily bread as he revealed, in an exclusive interview with futaa.com, that he is going back to school after the setback in football.
-I have decided to take a complete break from football – this is a hard decision for me and I take after consulting widely. I have realised that football in this country is full of people out to frustrate and kill talents.
-I want to concentrate on academics now; I have a life away from football and I am sure I will make it in life without these frustrations. In January I am going back to school, he said.
The midfielder rose from the Mathare Youth Sports Association (MYSA) to play for Tusker, KCB, and Gor Mahia before joining Sofapaka at the start of the second leg of the current season.
