Finally what we had expected came to pass, it's not strange though it's an African thing. Money first then the rest follows, this was the case with AFC Leopards rejuvenated forward Elvis Rupia 'Machapoo'.
Elvis had his much talked about move to Bisha FC in Saudi Arabia finalized, he's expected to apart of the team that will be up against Al Ain at 1900 hrs EAT.
The former Nakuru All Stars has penned down a one year deal with the second tier side Bisha with an option to extend for another season.
Before this untimely move to Mohammed Bin Salman kingdom it was believed that the Kenyan international had talks with FKF premier League champions Tusker and they were finalising the paperwork before Matano would unleash him.
This comes as a blow to Tusker whom have already let go of their teenage sensational striker Henry Mejja and they'll be up and running to secure a perfect replacement before next season's CAF Champions League.
Rupia being offered with two options guaranteed champions League football and with chances of proper exposure or a deal with the Arab side which always comes in handy.
The striker having experienced the hard side of kenyan football and looking at things from a different angle, am with him on his stand to choose to fill the bank instead of Champion league football. In the long run they'll all do this for money especially in regards to Machapo'os age the decision was for his benefit.
