Matters are worsening at Kenyan Premier League champions Gor Mahia day by day.
Just one day ago, it emerged that captain Kenneth Muguna and defender Joash Onyango were missing at KÓgalo, and now head coach Steven Polack says another defender Maurice Ojwang is also missing.
Polack says Ojwang, who was not part of the squad which edged out Kariobangi Sharks on Sunday, has not reported for training since the conclusion of FIFA break-about a week ago.
“Maurice got injured when we played in the last game against [Zoo Kericho] but again he is another player who is yet to report to training nor explain his absence.”
“One of our club rules requires every player including injured ones to report to training ground (even if you don’t get into the pitch). He has not reported to the training ground at all, and that explains his absence in yesterday’s (Sunday, October 20) match,” Polack said.
The Briton says the level of discipline at Gor Mahia is fast deteriorating- a thing he feels could affect the club’s performance going forward.
“I am a little bit disappointed when it comes to disciplinary issues because I have rules and regulations [which I set up when I joined the club}, and which the club agreed to but the players seem not to be following the same.
Gor Mahia are experiencing financial constraints following the exit of betting firm Sportpesa who stopped doing business in Kenya citing unfriendly business environment.
All in all, KÓgalo are at the summit of the Kenyan Premier League table with 15 points from five matches.
