Gor Mahia have rubbished claims that Kenneth Muguna has left to join KF Tirana of Albania.
Muguna had expressed desire to leave K’Ogalo barely seven months after his capture from Western Stima. He has been a key player in the midfiield for the Kenya Premier League leaders and has lately become a darling of the Green Army fans.
However, the club through the assistant secretary general, Ronald Ngala, refuted the claims that the 2016 Most Valuable Player (MVP) and Midfielder of the Year, has left for Albania to reunite with former coach Jose Ze Maria Ferreira
“He has expressed his desire to leave and we will not stand in his way if Tirana approaches us for negotiations since Muguna has a contract us. They haven’t made an official communication to us but once they come on board and we reach an agreement, we will allow Muguna to chase his European dream. Normally, we do not block players from advancing to a higher level or pursue their overseas dream.”
Under Ze Maria, Muguna had established himself as a dependable pillar in the midfield, commanding it with his superb skills and fine touches hence making opposing midfielders look inferior. His contribution has beeb phenomenal and has many a times attracted the attention of national team selection panelists who have handed him several caps.
His great pair with the Brazilian tactician was brought to limelight when the midfielder took to his social media avenues to express his despondency following Ze Maria’s unceremonious departure. Part of his sentiments read: “I am extremely gutted to see you leave but I am convinced all will be well. Thanks for being a pillar to us and all the best in the future.”
It was earlier reported that the former Western Stima man had absconded training sessions prior to last weekend’s clash against Muhoroni Youth, attracting a warning from the current coach Dylan Kerr. The tactician also decried the high rate at which Gor was losing key players having lost Amos Nondi to FC Kholketi Poti last month.
