Thika end mid­fielder Luvutsi’s con­tract on dis­ci­plinary grounds

The Star (Kenya) - - Sports -

Once stylish mid­fielder Michael Luvutsi con­tract has ter­mi­nated by his long term club, Thika United.

A state­ment by the club said they had opted to end Luvutsi’s con­tact due to per­sis­tent dis­ci­plinary is­sues.

“Thika United have with im­me­di­ate ef­fect ter­mi­nated the ser­vices of Luvutsi as a Thika United player. The club’s man­age­ment has re­solved to can­cel Luvutsi’s con­tract af­ter re­view­ing his spate of dis­rup­tive be­hav­iour and his con­duct was found dis­rep­utable both for the club and the spon­sors,” the state­ment on the club of­fi­cial por­tal read.

In his hey days, Luvutsi was a sight to be­hold with his as­sured touches and passes not to men­tion eye for a spec­tac­u­lar long range goal. Thika United FC head coach James Nandwa ex­pressed his dis­ap­point­ment on the mat­ter.

“I am very up­set and I feel let down by Luvutsi. See­ing that he is a se­nior player and ex­hibit­ing bad be­hav­iour in my pres­ence and the tech­ni­cal bench, is sheer dis­re­spect of me and those who have em­ployed me,” re­gret­ted Nandwa.

“If a player wants to leave any club not only Thika United, it’s al­ways pru­dent to leave with bless­ings. I can­not work with a player who doesn’t re­spect me as his coach,” added the coach.

Luvutsi, the club fur­ther re­vealed has al­ready been is­sued his ter­mi­na­tion let­ter and the club wishes him all the best in his en­deav­ours.
