Mutiso departs Mathare United



Former Kenyan Premier League champions Mathare United have been dealt another blow ahead of the new season following the exit of key midfielder Innocent Mutiso.

The former national under-23 ace, whose five-year contract with the club expired on December 31 2012, rejected a new offer from the slum boys.

Mutiso becomes the seventh influential player to leave Mathare following the departure of Martin Musalia to AFC Leopards, Andrew Tololwa and Jesse Were to Tusker, Francis Ouma to Sony Sugar and Athman Buki to Bandari.

Simon Mburu has also left the side and is now a free agent.

“I am out of contract and I am now officially a free agent,” said Mutiso.

“We have held many talks with Mathare but nothing concrete comes from it. I have decided not to extend my contract and I think it is time for me to move on and face new challenges. I have enjoyed my time at Mathare and I don’t regret what I have decided. I wish them all the best.”

He added: “I have resumed training and I am willing to join any club with a convincing offer.”

Mathare, who finished eighth on the table with 41 points, will start training on Thursday.
