Gor Mahia coach Zdravko Logarusic is set to return to the country on June 19 after a two week holiday in his native Croatia.
The tactician left Nairobi last week for his home country to rest and visit his family before the second leg of the premiership resumes on June 22.
According to Gor Mahia Secretary General George Bwana, Logarusic left clear instruction on the players to be signed and released before he left on Friday.
“The team will be reporting back to training on June 10 under assistant coach John ‘Bobby’ Ogolla while the coach (Logarusic) is expected back in Nairobi on June 19.”
“Before he left, he gave clear instructions on the transfer business for this window,” Bwana told Goal.
Bwana said the team is set to release four players and sign an equal number. “We have identified the four players set to be released and we will be aiming at signing an equal number.”
“We would like to have at least two midfielders since we have been struggling in that department as well as a young goalkeeper and a striker,” added Bwana.
Gor Mahia are currently lying seventh on the 16-team table standings and are looking on to replicate the form that saw them win two trophies last year – the FKF Cup and the KPL Top 8 tournament.
They were also on pole position to winning the league but fluffed on the final day drawing 1-1 with Thika United when they only needed three points to clinch the title after a 17-year wait.
