KPL top scorer heading to Sofapaka
KENYA Premier League(KPL) top leading scorer Joseph Emeka might be heading to Sofapaka, come next season.
The Nigerian player told "KenyaFootball.com” that he has been approached by Sofapaka officials adding that if given better package, he will not hesitate leaving Tusker after the end of the 2009 League season.
Speaking after attending Tusker FC training session at the Nairobi City Stadium on thursday morning, Emeka lamented that poor remuneration of players is hindering the lucrative League. "It's quite sad to find most clubs paying players from the range of Shs.15,000 to 20,000 which is peanuts considering the high standard of living.
"I may be comfortable in Tusker but I can say other teams are frustrating players with poor salaries and incentives,” Observed the Nigerian player.
Emeka with 14 goals to his credit took over as the leading scorer from Sofapaka's John Barasa after scoring two goals over the weekend in
Awendo. Tusker lost 4-3 in a high scoring KPL match.Sofapaka striker John Barasa who was leading with 13 goals has dropped to second after failing to score over the weekend when his club was held to a barren draw by Western Stima away in Kakamega.
