Gor Mahia axe five players



Kenyan Premier League (KPL) giants Gor Mahia have released five players as the team restructures for next season.

The dropped players are: goalkeeper Wycliffe Kasaya, striker George Midenyo, winger Kevin Ochieng, Congolese import Itubu Imbem and Oscar Mbugua.

According to the club’s official website, Gor- who will be representing Kenya in next year’s CAF Confederations Cup – are chasing the signatures of three players to fill the void left by the axed players.

Speaking to the website, the club’s secretary general George Bwana revealed that they have also identified players in the just concluded Cecafa Senior Challenge Cup in Uganda.

“We have identified some players in the Senior Challenge who we want to hold talks with. ‘We want to get the best and that is what we are targeting,” said Bwana.

Regarding the dropped players, the official defended their decision, saying they made the decision based on recommendations of the technical bench.

”With the advice from the technical bench, we have decided to part with the five,” said Bwana. Gor narrowly missed out on the KPL title after settling to a 1-1 draw with Thika United on the final day of the season, as Tusker FC thumped Nairobi City Stars 3-0 to retain the title.
