Gor Mahia assistant coach Sammy ‘Pamzo’ Omollo has shrugged off rumours that the club is currently divided.
Reports went round last month with claims that top Gor Mahia players had left the club’s official WhatsApp group as they protested the continuous non-payment of salaries. This came after a horrendous league campaign that saw Gor fail to defend it’s the title and finish a distant 8th on 45 points, 20 behind champions Tusker.
Speaking ahead of the team’s return to training, coach Pamzo hinted that everything is okay at the club and that all players are ‘expected’ to return early to begin preparations for next season.
Gor will officially resume training on Thursday, 9 September, 2020. The team will then face champions Tusker FC for the Super Cup on September 26.
“We are just preparing to start our season on Thursday and we just pray that everybody will come back. I am looking for a full house on Thursday and that is where my focus is. It was a very tough season for the club so we just hope that it will be a new beginning for us and try as much as possible to do well but it all starts with getting it right from Thursday,” Pamzo told Mozzart Sport.
Gor will represent Kenya in the CAF Confederations Cup and will take on the winners between Atlabara FC Juba and Al Ahly Merowe in October.
The club has already lost top players like Kenneth Muguna and Charles Momanyi with many more expected to leave. Clifton Miheso, Tito Okello and Jules Ulimwengu are the other players said to have left Gor even though no official communication has been made of the same.
