Congo united coach Abdalla Juma is categorical that the
Kenya Premier League is very unfair in judging all premier league teams equally
in terms of financing.
The KPL awards each team in the premier league kshs 270,000
for their monthly expenses but the seasoned tactician feels the amount is not
enough for teams from the coastal region considering the distances they travel.
Juma was speaking to futaa.com
and insisted that if this nation ever wants to see the likes of Rama Salim, coastal
teams ought to be treated more preferentially.
-We are very disadvantaged, the KPL rates us on the same
scale as teams from Nairobi yet we have to travel over a thousand kilometers
every four days. In the end we spend many days travelling and more money than
our competitors, he admitted.
Congo United are already relegated and he argues that the
travelling woes heavily took a toll on them in the premier league.
-In most situations we reach our destinations tired, which
impacts negatively on the team. KPL has to come up with modalities that will
protect our teams, he added
