The majority of this season’s regular starting eleven for Lae City FC will walk out of the club with sacked coach Peter Gunemba, according to sources close to the Gunemba family and owner Ian Chow.
It was also revealed that Gunemba will not take charge of the side for tomorrow’s home game against Tusbab Stallions.
The players set to leave the club are Gunemba’s sons Troy and Raymond Gunemba, as well as attackers Nigel Dabinyaba and Obert Bika, midfielders Jacob Sabua and Emmanuel Simon, defenders Goropaul Albert, Valentine Nelson, and Mosie Milubwa, and goalkeepers Matheson Nasa and Ronald Warisan.
Gunemba had initially been set to manage the side for a final time on Saturday against Tusbab Stallions, but has since asked Chow not to be present at the match, so it is unclear if any of the players above will be available for selection. It is expected that new coach Bob Morris will take over with a new-look squad.
