Former Harambee Stars goalkeeper Noah Ayuko living in squalor

Former Harambee Stars goalkeeper Noah Ayuko is a man struggling to make ends meet.

Photos of the former Harambee Stars custodian doing the rounds online show him looking frail with unkempt hair.

In one photo, he is seen in the company of an unidentified police officer.

Reports indicate Ayko, formerly of Karuturi Sports, is currently residing in a slum in Kakamega county.

Family and friends are concerned about his welfare after he walked out on a job offer of becoming the goalkeeping trainer of second tier side Vihiga United.

“Yes (Vihiga Governor Moses) Akaranga gave him a job but he just walked away without offering an explanation after a few weeks,” our source said.

Ayuko joins a growing list of ex-internationals who are struggling to make ends meet after hanging up their boots.

Others are former Gor Mahia captain Julius Owino “Awilo”, and former Harambee stars legend Joe Kadenge who recently appealed to well wishers to help him meet his medical bills
