Anthony Gathu

Previous Club Mount Kenya University
Position: Midfielder
Years Active 2012 – Present

The youthful Gathu joined Gor Mahia in mid 2012 from Mount Kenya University.

According to the Daily nation, One morning in June last year, Anthony Gathu travelled from his home in Thika to try his luck in achieving his dream of playing for Gor Mahia. He borrowed bus fare to attend trials at the City Stadium. His first day was disappointing and coach Zdravko Logarusic told him he had no place at Kā€™Ogalo. He pleaded for another chance. The following day he showed up and performed splendidly, the Croatian coach promptly signed him.

Having only trained with the team for one week and playing one game, he earned the nickname Gaucho in honour of the Brazilian midfield sensation Ronaldinho Gaucho. Gathu has been described by the club’s assistant coach Bobby Ogolla as being fearless, talented and full of youthful exhuberance.

The 2013 season was an unfortunate one for Gathu as he was beset by injuries. During the 2013-2014 transfer season, he was released by Gor Mahia to allow him to pursue other opportunities. A player of his calibre was deemed capable of earning a starting position elsewhere in the TPL which would benefit his development.
