Gor Mahia FC head coach Steven Polack claims that the team’s skipper Kenneth Muguna and dependable defender Joash Onyango will not leave the club.
According to reports, captain Kenneth Muguna and his assistant Joash Onyango are among the players who are targeted by a number of clubs.
Reports indicate that Tanzania giants Simba SC already in talks to sign Kenneth Muguna.
The Kenyan champions are currently struggling to pay salaries to players and the technical bench.
This is the reason why most of their key players have already expressed the desire to leave the club in search for greener pastures.
However, despite all these struggles by the club Steven Polack is optimistic that the K’Ogalo will be able to keep their star players.
“I don’t think we Gor Mahia are supposed to let any player go, it is not in my plans and I don’t want to see that happen under my reign,” Polack was quoted saying.
“I have seen reports linking both Muguna and Onyango away from the club but I don’t think it will be the case.”
“We want to make sure we keep our best players and the two are part of my plans for next season.”
“I have already asked the top management to start engaging players whose contracts are running down so we can know exactly who is in and who is out.”
“I want to keep the squad intact and maybe beef it up with a few new signings,” he added.
Mapingano ready to leave Gor Mahia
Despite claims from Polack, Tanzanian custodian David Mapigano has claimed he will not return to play for Gor Mahia.
According to the 22-year-old goalkeeper, he will only return if they pay him all the money he is owed.
Meanwhile, defender Dickson Ambundo is also a transfer target for another Tanzanian club Yanga SC.
