Gor Mahia facing players’ exodus over alienation

K’Ogalo could lose a number of players who feel they have been neglected by the technical bench and are no longer fielded even when they deserve to play

Some experienced players are feeling alienated at Kenyan Premier League champions Gor Mahia and may opt out at the end of the season.

The players claim they have been neglected by the technical bench and are no longer fielded even when they deserve to play.

“We don’t feel appreciated. Some of us just train for the sake of it because we know and have been told we cannot play. We are just marking time and looking for an opportunity to go,” a player, who asked not to be named, told Goal on Thursday.

Head coach Frank Nuttall has opted to retain the same squad for a good part of this season. The move has so far worked as the club remains unbeaten in seventeen league matches and could be declared champions with some matches to go.

Among the experienced players, who have found play hard to come by are goalkeeper Jerim Onyango, George Odhiambo and Israel Emuge, who has since left to join AFC Leopards.
