Timbe turns down Stars call up
Kenyan midfielder Ayub Timbe has for the second time turned down an offer to play for Harambee Stars.
The Belgium based player who plies his trade for Genk intimated to coach Adel Amrouche that he had other commitments and would therefore not be available to play in the crucial match against Nigeria next week in Nairobi.
However Amrouche termed the action of the player as unpatriotic and wondered why he was missing on a great opportunity to play for the national team and offer that every players dreams of.
"I am very disappointed with Ayub Timbe for the second time now he has turned down my offer to have him join the team ahead of Nigeria. To me this is unpatriotic and the only reason he gave was that he was not ready and had other engagements which does not add up."
"Every players dreams is to be in the national team but am surprised by Timbe's actions and remember well before our game with Nigeria in Calabar I called him up and he gave me a reason that he was nursing an injury," Amrouche told supersport.com.
Stars are preparing to play Nigeria in a World cup qualifier before travelling to Malawi for another crunch match.
