The financial crunch at Gor Mahia is taking toll on players with Ghanaian striker Francis Afriyie the latest to ditch the club.
Afriyie left for his native country Ghana before Christmas but has not returned.
Gor however got news of his exit at the weekend via his agent, who attributed his departure to lack of payment of his client’s salary, which he argues is a breach of the contract.
The Ghanaian joined the Kenyan champions at the beginning of the season and has been an important cog in K’Ogalo’s formation.
Club deputy secretary general Ronald Ngala confirmed the developments. “His( Afriyie) agent said we have not been able to pay the striker as per the contract. This has been due to lack of finances since we currently don’t have a sponsor.”
Afriyie’s exit comes just a fortnight after another striker, Ivorian import Gnamien Yikpe ditched the club for Yanga SC of Tanzania, featuring as a substitute on January 4 in the derby against Simba which ended two-all.
