Gor to sign Brazilian striker



After lengthy negotiations spanning a period of six months, Gor Mahia FC are set to sign Brazilian striker Giovani Rodrigues.

The 25-year-old started his career at the Atlantic Sport Club, Rio White Sport Club and Rio Branco Sport Club football academies.

He was then signed by White River Sport, Union Marechal Hermes and later Esporte Club Compo Grande, all playing in the Giovani second division league, while he also represented Persian league side Senate Kaveh Tehran FC.

Speaking on the pursuit of Rodrigues, Gor’s secretary general George Bwana said that they have already reached an agreement with the player and that he is expected to arrive in the country before the end of the year.

“We have had intense talks with the player and once he arrives in the country we shall embark on the contract signing process,” said Bwana.

“We have watched the player’s videos and have done a critical analysis of his skill together with our coaches and we can confirm that this is bound to be a great signing,” added Bwana.

Gor closed the 2012 season ranked second, only falling at the last hurdle, after a draw against Thika United. They also won the other two titles (the domestic cup and top eight cup) on offer.
