Nkata: I dropped my son from Tusker because of his ‘indiscipline’

Tusker FC’s title winning coach Paul Nkata has lifted the lid as to why he dropped his son from the club.

The tactician attracted widespread attention in the local football circles earlier this year when he released his son Fred Nkata alongside other players from the first team.

The Nkatas had joined the Ruaraka based club on an initial two years.

At the time, reports circulated that the senior Nkata had dropped his son after the latter failed to make the grade with the Kenyan Premier League champions.

LEAGUE AND CUP DOUBLE

This isn’t the case though, according to the coach.

In an exclusive interview with the Nairobi News, Nkata senior explained that his son was forced to leave the club owing to discipline issues.

“Fred is in Kampala now. He left camp without notifying the team manager and when he returned, he had to step aside for a while,” the Ugandan coach explained.

However, without his son’s contribution, the 56 year old has led the club to a league and cup double, with wins in the Kenyan Premier League and the GOtv Shield.

This achievement has earned Tusker the rights to compete in the Caf African Champions League next season.
