Gor Mahia forward Danny Sserunkuma is reported to be reconsidering his earlier stand to leave the club after the 2013 season, in which he helped K’Ogalo secure its first league title in 18 years.

The player is reported to have handed in a transfer request after the GOtv Shield final but according to club Vice Chairman Faiz Ochieng, he spoke to the player during the KPL Awards on Wednesday 20 November and the Ugandan is willing to stay on.

Higher league

Faiz admitted that it is indeed any player’s wish to move to a higher league with much better terms and had spoken to the player about it with the hope of a good deal materializing in future. He as well reiterated the club’s declaration not to stand in the player’s way in case a good deal comes by.

-It is true Danny wanted to leave but I spoke to him during the KPL Awards, a very open discussion and he told me he is willing to rethink his earlier demand and stay on. I know it is always every player’s desire to move to a higher league and with better terms so with him is not different.

Take his time

-I am of the view that if he takes his time he will get a better move and as we had already said, we cannot stand in his way when the right deals comes, he told futaa.com.

Sserunkuma was the subject of a failed transfer move to Armenian top flight side Banants FC earlier in the 2013 season.

    To me a win win situation would be for Danny leaving to earn big money and GM getting some millions in the deal instead of buying time and letting him leave as a free agent.

    In the coming elections, I suggest that we should have a club’s “spokesman” who will be charged with responsibility of conveying official news after communicating with the office.
    Talking of Communication, may I ask where Gor Mahia players will be tommorow? At Family fun day- City Stadium or competing in Mombasa Wundanyi with AFC Leopards and Sofapaka for a price of sh. 500,0000.

    Hehehehe i’ve also talked to Messi & he assured me he wil seeriously consider joining K’galo should he decide to leave Barcalona.
    Election fever has set in but what a dubious scheme by Faiz (btw one of the many vice chairmen)
    AVOID UNKNOWNS & VOTE WISELY. TRY OR GIVE QUALIFIED LEGENDS A CHANCE AM SURE WE CAN DO BETTER THAN THE LIKES OF FAIZ & HIS ILK.

    Faiz, Please stop confusing Danny and let him leave. If he finds the place unfavourable then as Gor fans we will accept him back with no conditions. After all he has delivered what we wanted, the TPL league after 18 years and we can also get some good money from the transaction

    I THINK GOR MAHIA EC IS USING ‘DANNY’ AS AN ELECTIONS BAIT !!!!!! YOU VOTE FOR US , WE RETAIN DANNY, YOU DONT VOTE FOR US ,WE RELEASE DANNY……..OMERA SIASA MBAYA, MPIRA MBAYA

  • RETHINK YOUR STAND DANNY

    as much as we want to retain Danny, let us give him time to rethink his decision . Only a mad man doesn’t reverse his decision. Faiz could have given the diminutive striker more time considering that it was only yesterday the season has ended. In any case, Danny has an agent who they can talk to.

    Faiz and his ilk, must always explore other options if they fail to secure the signature of the player in the 2014 Tusker Premier League season. Our champions League campaign starts now and we cannot entertain any excuses from the Executive Committee. We do not even want the EC to use Danny’s stay in the club for political reasons.

    The current EC, in my view, have done an average job and some of them should start packing. when they were soliciting for votes, they talked big. Two years down the line , nothing has changed. The club stadium, which was their biggest campaign issue, is nowhere near fruitition. It is just a dream. Former PM, RAO during one luncheon for the champions challenged the club fathers to keep the stadium dream alive. He challenged them to start the process either by floating drawings, securing the land and if they are unable to fulfill their pledge during their tenure, let those who come after them do it.

    I urge our delegates to except nothing short of a stadium in the next EC members. The time for empty rhetoric are over. We need men and women who mean what they say. As for me, I will be first of all fight to be registered as a delegate.
