Gor Mahia secretary general George Bwana says that the team will not play AFC Leopards in the Top Eight tournament after their archrivals failed to honour the clash last Sunday.
Kenyan Premier League’s governing council awarded Gor the match after Leopards refused show up only for Football Kenya Federation to overrule the decision and ask KPL to write a report about the match
Bwana told SuperSport.com that his team will reiterated that his team will not accept anything less than playing against Tusker in the Semi finals on Thursday.
He maintained that they would follow the decision by KPL’s league governing council to award them the walkover and threatened to pull out of the tournament if asked to face Leopards.
“We are currently focused on the semi finals against Tusker and anything to the contrary will lead us to pulling out of the tournament all together. We are in the Top 8 tournament to help develop youth football since the money from gate collections will be used to organise the under 19 tourney but KPL’s decisions have to be respected.”
Gor are slated to clash with Tusker in the semifinals on Thursday at the Moi International Sports Complex.
