Gor sign Mutiso from Mathare
Former Kenya under 20 midfielder Innocent Mutiso has completed his move to Kenyan Premier League giants Gor Mahia from Mathare United.
Mutiso, who snubbed a contract extension offer from his ex-employers, has been training with K’ogalo for the past few weeks.
After a five year stay at Mathare, having joined them in 2007 as a fresh graduate from high school, Mutiso opted not to renew his contract upon expiry in December 2012.
And after impressing Gor’s Zdravko Logarusic-led technical bench, the enterprising winger has been handed a two-year deal as confirmed by the club’s secretary general George Bwana.
“The player has been training with our team and he finally received the nod to sign for the club, after the decision was made in a meeting held earlier today afternoon, with the head coach in attendance,” Bwana told the club’s official website.
“We now settled in as far as player transfers are concerned with the last chance awarded to Innocent Mutiso.”
Mutiso is the sixth player to be signed by Gor in the off-season following the acquisition of Paul Kiongera, Israel Emuge, Abbey Natty Kunrumi, David Otieno and Brazilian forward Giovani Bissolli Rodriguez.
Gor, Kenya’s representatives in this year’s Caf Confederations Cup, will take on Anse Reunion of Seychelles in the preliminary round of the competition in a first leg tie on the weekend of February 15–17.
