Tusker drops nine players



Kenyan Premier League champions Tusker FC have reportedly sacked nine players.

Reports indicate that the contracts of the affected players were terminated by the Ruaraka–based side due to poor performance and lack of playing time.

Among the dropped players were injury prone midfielder Crispin Olando and striker Dennis Mukaisi. The former Kenyan internationals were sidelined for the better part of the 2012 season with knee (Olando) and ankle (Mukaisi) injuries.

The hard-tackling midfielder was injured in April after playing only four games while the former AFC Leopards goal poacher suffered an ankle injury during pre-season.

Apart from the duo, the other dropped players include Ugandan import David Nyanzi, Joseph Emeka, Allan Katerega, Andrew Murunga, Fredrick Ajuang, Isaac Otieno and Charles Odette.

According to sources, the brewers have already identified replacements for the dropped players.

“Talks are already at an advanced stage with targeted players across the region. Some of the trialists will also be signed,” said the source.

“They have dropped players due to various reasons ranging from poor performance and unproductiveness.”

Tusker will represent Kenya in next year’s CAF Champions League after successfully retaining the title.
