The Gor Mahia management is unaware of any player’s departure after the 2013 season, at least until the technical team meets the management for a discussion on the same.
Reports have been rife in various quarters claiming that defender Israel Emuge, veteran midfielder Moses Odhiambo, Dan Sserunkuma and a few others have left the club but according to vice chairman Faiz Ochieng, those are just rumors being peddled on social media.
Post season meeting
The K’Ogalo official said the management will have a post season meeting with the technical bench soon to discuss about the team and noted that after that is when such matters will be clear.
-As an official I do not believe in rumors posted on social media. When we sign players we give them contracts to sign on paper, we never do that on social media. If Emuge or anyone else is leaving, the technical team will tell us. That is why we have a technical bench – to be the link between management and players.
No one released
-So as far as I know, no player has been released. We just finished the season the other day and we have not had a meeting with the technical bench for a season review. We will have a meeting soon and such matters will be clearer thereafter, he told futaa.com.
Gor Mahia claimed their first league title in 18 years this season but their quest for a double fell short after a 0 – 1 loss to AFC Leopards in the GOtv Shield final.
