Gor Mahia will abide by Football Kenya Federation’s decision to cancel the club’s friendly against Sudanese giant Al Hilal Omdurman, club chairman Ambrose Rachier has said.
The club was scheduled to honour an invite from the Sudanese club for a friendly on Wednesday next week.
But FKF declined to allow the team to travel, saying they have a league fixture against Tusker on the same day.
Rachier has now sarcastically said that the federation is so powerful and with a very powerful President (Nick Mwendwa) and therefore the club can do nothing about the decision.
“We did the necessary and wrote to them about our intention to travel to Sudan. The federation’s secretary has responded and declined our request. The federation is so powerful and with a powerful President and so we have nothing to do,” Rachier Gor said as quoted by Citizen Digital.
Rachier and Mwendwa have had a frosty relationship in recent times, especially over the controversial broadcast deal between the federation and StarTimes.
On Wednesday, FKF President said the federation will open disciplinary proceedings against Rachier for bringing the game to disrepute. He cited the letter written by the Gor Mahia official to StarTimes.
However, the renown lawyer has said he is ready to face FKF but they should not dare touch the club.
“Let them discipline me according to the law but let them not touch Gor. We are still not part of the broadcasting agreement with StarTimes and that is our final position,” he said.
Gor will face Ulinzi stars in their first league action on Saturday.
