Way to Go Mariga, yours is a move all players should emulate.
I know nothing about football.
That's not entirely true: Ok,I know two things: That he likes Manchester United, and so I was informed i'm on that side too, and that I like to guess scores of matches based on absolutely nothing.
But, I've got a rant, that's got everything to do with football, and also nothing to do with football, depending on how you want to look at it. I'll make it short.
Last week, Kenya played Togo, we won. 2-1. One of our international players, Macdonald Mariga (Midfielder, Parma, Italy) refused to play in the match because the Football Kenya Federation owed him 1.5 million shillings in airfare dues. But Kenyans have now gone all out, cursing at Mariga for his "lack of patriotism".
Patriotism? Here's my rant.
I'm with Mariga all the way.
How do we expect Kenyan football to ever mature into international standards if we keep playing footsie with the management.
We've mastered the art of Double standards!
FKF should get its act together. It may be a new management ( I hear someone laugh about that too) But they need to treat our professional players with the respect they deserve.
Football management in Kenya is a big fat rot. Sigh.
