Gor in crisis mode as key players depart
24 June 2014, 14:11
Nairobi - Gor Mahia are in a tight spot as the departure of key players hits the Kenyan Premier League champions.
Gor have now lost three first team players in the last few weeks, with Teddy Akumu heading for Sudan, Joseph Wanyonyi to AFC Leopards and Kevin Omondi to South African side Moroka Swallows.
The three are yet to be replaced and with rumblings over the future of Rama Salim and Dan Sserunkuma, the side's top scorers this season, adding to the uncertainty at the club.
" These are worrying times. Players are leaving and we are not replacing them, Julius Owino, a former Gor captain said.
" I hear there is a search for new players but the worry is whether the quality will be the same or even better than the ones that have left, he added.
Gor are only two points ahead of second placed Chemelil Sugar in the league and might be caught by Tusker FC who have a game in hand on them.
The club though is working overtime to get new players in.
" The club is doing its best and as far as we are concerned, things will work out, Secretary General Chris Omondi said of the transfer situation at the club.
