Tusker FC midfielder Humphrey Mieno has revealed the reason why he left St. George after a very short stint in Ethiopia.
The lanky player, who has also played for Sofapaka and Gor Mahia in the Kenyan Premier League (KPL), has explained to Goal he had a disagreement with the club in regards to the contract, hence the decision to end his stay and return to Kenya.
“In Ethiopia, I had a disagreement with the club [St. George] on personal terms and security was also an issue that made me come back home,” Mieno told Goal on Sunday.
On returning home, Mieno decided to sign for Tusker, a club he has now helped to move second on the 17-team team league table after collecting 24 points, one less than leaders Gor Mahia.
Mieno was on the scoresheet as the Brewers beat Bandari FC 1-0 on Sunday and he says the win will motivate them to do even better in the coming matches.
“It was a very good win for us because our target is to finish as close as possible with the leading teams at the halfway stage,” Mieno continued.

“If we manage this, then we will not lose focus as we will remain in the race to reclaim the title.”
On the state of the pitch at Ruaraka Grounds, Mieno said: “It’s very disappointing my shoes are this muddy and dirty. I pray for the Kenyan government to help renovate the stadium. As players, we can’t showcase our talents because our passes and moves don’t work.”
Tusker will next face struggling Kariobangi Sharks hoping to put more pressure on Gor Mahia.
