FKF official Robert Muthomi distances himself from John Avire transfer Saga

Football Kenya Federation (FKF) general secretary and chief executive officer Robert Muthomi has denied allegations he tried to influence the transfer of John Avire from Sofapaka.

Earlier, Sofapaka president Elly Kalewkwa claimed Muthomi was acting as Avire's agent and he was secretly influencing his transfer to an unnamed club in Egypt.

Muthomi also welcomed the expected investigations promised by FKF president Nick Mwendwa on the matter.

"I emphatically deny the allegations made against me that I have tried to coerce the player (John) Avire to terminate his contract with Sofapaka FC," Muthomi said in a press statement seen by Goal.
