Kenya:Coach worried as players dump broke Gor
By Samuel Ouma
Gor Mahia head coach Steve Pollack has expressed his frustrations following the departure of a number of his experienced players due to financial constraints.
In the last few weeks the Kenyan Premier League champions has witnessed the exit of players such as Joash Onyango, Boniface Omondi and Charles Momanyi.
Others are Peter Odhiambo, David Mapigano and Dickson Ambundo.
Gor Mahia vice-captain would join Tanzania champions Simba according to the club whereas speedy winger Dickson Ambundo is heading to his home country Tanzania after his loan stint at Gor expired.
Goalkeeper David Mapigano had joined Azam of Tanzania and the duo, Fredrick Peter Odhiambo alongside lethal striker Boniface Omondo sealed their move to Wazito FC.
Pollack noted that he has no option but to start rebuilding process after the mass exodus.
“I think you know why the players are leaving and why I am mad, all the players that are leaving they are quality players and I will be a selfish coach to say now I want to keep them because you know the financial situation at the club, “ he noted.
“First of all, they have made their decisions to leave because of the circumstances the club finds itself in , it is the big reason why they have left, I would have loved them to stay, but players come and go but the club will still be there,” he added.
The Briton averred that he has a list of players he wants to sign but it will depend on the availability of finances saying he is waiting for direction from the club’s management.
