Gor Mahia refute departure reports

courtesy of futaa.com

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.

  1. Let the technical bench speak all the rest relax and wait to be voted out people like Faiz,Kilo etc what value do they bring in?
    Confusion is the value they add fukuza hii watu kabisa!

  2. The fish rots from the head, so the wise men of old said. To me its not just faiz,bwana, kilo etc. The entire ec must take responsibility for their campaign pledges, current performance and vision. Lets be honest here for the past six years the other positions have been changed with the same notion that some ec members are good while some are demons but the situation has gotten worse. I hope guys will for once wake up.

  3. Are the elections getting the better of the Team or are we still dancing to Kanungo Kanungo as a way of partying? That we came third behind Efusi and Sofapaka in the Wundanyi tournament is what prompts me to ask this. Let the DJ give us more Kanungo Kanungo meanwhile Al Ahly is waiting for us in round one.

  4. You mean there was a tournament in Wundanyi.
    Anyway gor coming third does not suprise me, i know that the technical bench is only getting ready for continental assignment.


    K’Ogalo officials have come out strongly to refuse the rumors that some players are on their way out. Well, that may be true but as they say, where there is smoke, there is fire. This is not the first time rumors about the departure of some dependable Gor Mahia players are seeking greener pastures elsewhere.

    At the tail end of this season, Dan Sserenkuma was sneaked out of the country for trials with a top Armenian side. However his transfer hit a snag because the player has not completed his contract with Gor Mahia. He only came, in my view, to complete the contract and very soon , the player might take the flight to Armenia. The club should start preparing to negotiate the transfer fee as soon as possible.

    According to Faiz, there is no clear date the officials will meet the technical bench to hear their champions league campaign programme and strategy. As i have often stated, time is of essence. We as fans want to know who is out and who is in. We want not only our presence to be felt at the continental championship but also we want to prove to Africa that the sleeping giant has awaken. We don’t want excuses or mixed signals from the EC and the technical bench. We want men and women who dare dream like H. E Alfred Mutua. We want new thinking and new action. Gor Mahia has been there for over 40 years and there is little to boast of it, not even a nice salary package for the players and the technical bench. Cartels working in cahoots with some officials have milked this club dry. Shame on you!

    Finally, it is my wish this unnecessary anxiety should be put to rest. The earlier we know our full squad, the better. Finally, I know some officials eyeing some positions are busy copying and pasting some previous manifestos. Guys, more to that we need an individual who have demonstrated passion to reform this club. Is there such person out there? Let me know.

  6. Though sad players will always leave GM.
    What worries me is V.C’s No. 2’s comment that bloated executive community is yet 2 meet TB. That simply means according 2 Faiz we have not started negotiations with our transfer targets yet the deadline 4 CAF player submission draws nearer day by day.
    This is y we end up signing players with injuries or JaBrazil type.Top local targets will also have been snapped up.Lets hope the other faction (actually AR) is working & will update fringe officials/us soon.

  7. It looks like players leaving and coming in is part of football rumor mill in the whole world. As such it helps in filling in the gap especially after every break or end of soccer bonanza or league.Looked at from the other side of the coin, it allows as kuchambua the just concluded and possibly make suggestions without pressure. I am therefore confident that good things will come out for the betterment of K’Ogallo.May be we could also remain hawk eyed during the cecafa tournament to see if it could be a recruiting ground and as I suggested earlier, look at the Ethiopians and Sudan. Just a thought
