Gor Mahia FC head coach Steven Polack has acknowledged that he has no plans of signing new players for his club.

According to the British tactician, the club has no money to support transfer activities.

Steven Polack has already identified a few players he would love to bring to strengthen the squad.

However, the financial situation at the club has forced him to wait for things to improve.

“Sorry, for now, I cannot talk about signings when the club does not have any money for the business,” Steven Polack said on Tuesday.

“Let me give you a very good example, let’s say you are a player and I am talking to you, by the way.”

“Please I will like you come and play for my club, this is the reason why and tell me about you.”

“You explain to me and then you ask me, what about the finances, do you have the money?”

“That will be one of your questions and currently, Gor Mahia doesn’t have the money,” he added.

K’Ogalo to play in Champions League

Gor Mahia have already been listed by the Confederation of African Football (Caf) as Kenya’s representatives in Caf Champions League next season.

This will need them to strengthen their squad if they are to make a mark in the competition but the finances cannot allow them.

“I cannot tell you, yes we might have some money in the future, I cannot pledge because the situation is bad.”

“I cannot discuss anything to do with transfers until the clubs shows me they have finances.”

“You cannot do anything, we might have some in the future so for now, I don’t want to discuss anything.”

Gor Mahia struggling financially

The Kenyan Premier League giants have been struggling financially since losing their main sponsors SportPesa.

“For me, I don’t want to tell players to come to play for us when we don’t have money.

“When you want to sign a player I always talk to the management first, how much money do we have?”

“And then I can bring in my new players, but the case, for now, is different at Gor Mahia because we don’t have money,” Steven Polack noted.

Gor Mahia are also struggling to pay salaries to players and the technical bench.

This is the reason most of their key players have already expressed the desire to move to greener pastures if they get good offers.
