The players’ one voice statement comes a day after a meeting between FKF and KPL to discuss composition of 2015 league collapsed with the latter walking away.
KPL said they had walked away because FKF had demanded that they cast a vote to decide how many teams will feature in the league. Whereas FKF are advocating for an expanded league of 18-teams, KPL wants 16.
KPL have also vowed to continue with a parallel league after FKF Premier League started last weekend with Shabana FC edging out Nakumatt 1-0 at Machakos Municipal Stadium.
