Mr. Imonje is irked by the Kenyan international’s conduct in the game, whom he says elbowed his player, Dan Odhiambo twice which meant that Odhiambo had to be substituted and taken to hospital with a broken nose bridge.
Speaking to futaa.com, a riled Imonje absolved the referee from any wrong doing in the two incidents but observed that if the referee had spotted them, Wanga would have been sent off. He was particularly mad that Wanga, an international could do that to Odhiambo, even after the two played together at earlier stages.
-What happened was quite unacceptable, my player was elbowed by Allan Wanga two times in the game and he was even left with a broken nose and he is still in pain at the moment. The reason I say it is unacceptable is because Wanga is an international player who’s got to have outgrown such unsporting behaviours.
-We had to spend a lot of money at the Nairobi West Hospital to get Dan Odhiambo treated. Not that money is the issue here but such behaviour coming from a player like Wanga is really a cause for concern. I don’t think the referee spotted it but it was a clear red card situation and that would have killed off AFC Leopards, he said.
-I am also not happy with Wanga because at an early stage of his career he played with Odhiambo in Kisumu and they were good friends. What is making him behave this way and at this moment when we want professionalism in our game, Imonje wondered.
Muhoroni Youth went ahead in the game after 20 minutes courtesy of James Onyango’s goal but capitulated under the Kenya Premier League (KPL) leaders’ pressure as they conceded two second half goals through Wanga and Victor Ochieng.
