Former Western Stima head- coach Fred Serenge has revealed that he’s turned down three offers from three KPL clubs since his resignation last year as the power-men’s tactician as Henry Omino replaced him.
Speaking to futaa.com,Serenge a former Kenya Breweries now Tusker Fc said that AFC Leopards’ officials approached him three times in a row but rejected the deal since Ingwe was experiencing management squabbles. Mombasa based club Congo United also courted for another bid by title contenders Rangers Fc but the tactician rejected all of them and opted for secondary school job as a coach.
-I was nearly taking that one for AFC but the instability in the club put me off. Though i was willing to refurbish the former giants and recapture its’ lost glory my conscience couldn’t allow because i knew what happened at my former club (Western Stima) could repeat.
-For Congo United and Rangers there terms were not motivating. They were not willing to give me a substantial offer that could sustain me in the urban centres like Mombasa and Nairobi.
-I am in the grace period, trying to nurture talents but I will come back into the premiership at the right time but not now.
-They might be thinking that am after money, but that’s a lame statement because currently am coaching Arch- Bishop Njenga Girls High School which doesn’t have money and am enjoying it. It’s only the environment that matters most, nothing else, said the former player.
