Liberian defender Dirkir Glay who has been unable to play for Gor Mahia in the Kenya Premier League this season due to lack of a work permit, has finally been granted a temporary work permit.
“We managed to get the document and he is now available for selection on Sunday. We are grateful that all went well.” said a club official to goal.com
With regard to the formal permanent work permit, Gor Mahia officials are left scratching their heads wondering why it is taking so long.
“We managed to get the document and he is now available for selection on Sunday. We are grateful that all went well.” said Ronald Ngala to goal.com
Galy had earlier expressed dissapointment with club officials for not working on his work permit early enough.
“I am very disappointed that K’Ogalo management is yet to renew my work permit. Since I signed for Gor Mahia I am still using Thika United permit. I cannot use the same to play for Gor Mahia. Rules states clearly that I must renew my permit and this must be done by Gor Mahia” he said.
The decision to grant Glay a work permit is good news for the club since the defence has been less than stellar in the local league. Reports coming out of Congo suggested that Glay was one of the best players on the field during the return leg against AC Leopards.
