Thika coach Muyoti throws in towel after tumultuous stint

Kenya Premier League (KPL) side Thika United’s woes continue as head coach Nicholas Muyoti called it quits on Monday evening, a day after their 3-0 thrashing by Nzoia Sugar.

The tactician cited poor results as the main reason for his resignation but said he would be willing to return if the environment was conducive for the players to give their all.

“First I would like to express my gratitude to Thika United and the entire management for the opportunity and belief they accorded me during my stay here.

However, in football and as a coach, performance is gauged by results and the results have not been good, so I’ve decided to resign as Thika United coach and move on.

I wish the team all the best in their future matches,” read his statement. Muyoti took over in 2017 from James Nandwa, guiding them through a tight battle for relegation where they narrowly survived after beating National Super League side Ushuru.

The milkmen, however, have had a bad run in KPL having started with a 3-3 draw against Nakumatt and registering a single win, in 13 matches, in a 2-1 win against Sofapaka.

They are logged 17th on the table. Sources indicate that the playing unit has gone without pay for the last two months and their bonuses have not been paid since last year and that might have led to the loss of morale and concentration in the team.
