Kamau reveals Chimaroke snub

After Rangers FC failed in their bid to stay in the Kenyan Premier League, it emerged that Emmanuel Chimaroke was being pursued by Thika United.

The Nigerian, however, turned down an approach by Thika, according to the top-flight club’s coach John Kamau.

“We wanted to seal his deal even before the 2012 season ended and indeed he was approached and talked to but from our opinion we did not think he was too keen on joining Thika United and more so his feedback was not so clear which left us with no option so we chose to look at other options,” said Kamau of the right-sided player.

“He is a very good player; a great full-back with good runs when overlapping and well timed crosses and I really wanted to have him here but I am one person who believes in a player’s freedom to choose what he prefers. Life has to move on. I know he will get a good team for the 2013 season,” concluded Kamau.

Chimaroke, who was signed by Rangers midway through last season, had earlier stated that he is no longer contracted to the side and is on the lookout for new employers.
