If Gor Mahia beat Aigle Noir of Burundi next weekend, they will have the services of the foreign duo of Francis Afiriyie and Yikpe Ghislain. The Ghanaian and Ivorian duo are not available for the opening round but will be eligible should Gor Mahia proceed to round one.
“According to the latest communication we have received from CAF, the two strikers may be allowed to play after the Sunday match ahead of us. This will be a big boost to us,’’ explained Ngala to Citizen Sports.
The winner between Gor Mahia and Aigle Noir will likely face USM Alger in the first round. The Algerian side won the opening leg 2-1 away to Nigerien side AS Sonindep.
“We are ready for the Burundians and our plans started yesterday with our first trophy of the season, we are building on the players dedication and determination to go places this season,’’ Ngala continued.
