Gor Mahia were scheduled to leave for Narok on Monday for pre-season training. The training is geared towards preparing for the 2018 Super Cup against AFC Leopards as well as the 2018 Africa champions league match against Leones Vegeterianos of Equatorial Guinea.
“The pre-season is for both the league matches and the Caf Champions League. We would like to perform better in both so we are putting in the work,” club Chief Executive Officer Lordvick Aduda said to the Nation.
Aduda indicated that the participation in the 2018 Champions league was still up in the air to to financial constraints occassioned by the Sponsors Sportpesa.
“We can’t walk from here to Equatorial Guinea. If there is no money we will not honour those matches,” he said.
Talks with Sportpesa are still ongoing.
“At this moment we are, however, staying positive because we are in talks with SportPesa and other potential sponsors, and we are optimistic of getting a good deal.”
