Gor Mahia Secretary General Sam Ochola fired a warning shot at ‘cartels’ within the clubs whom he accused of bringing low-quality players to the club as a path to swindle the record league champions.
The team is also set to work on its transfer policy to ensure that only the right players join the team. Ochola blamed these cartels for the increase in the number of players reporting the club to FIFA resulting in sanctions including transfer bans.
“That said, we are also looking at a transfer policy and will have to dismantle the cartels who bring underperforming players to the club and quote a higher transfer fee for their own benefit,” Ochola said.
“Most of the foreign players who took us to Fifa were not even part of the first team last season,” Ocholla told the Nation.
Last week, the club sent team manager Jolawi Obondo on mandatory leave and he later fired a warning at the veteran administrator accusing him of being part of the people causing the team problems. He appeared to throw a jab at Obondo over bad recruitment.
“We recently made changes in the technical bench. There is no room for those who have been duping the club into signing foreigners, some who don’t have any quality of being a professional footballer. The money we will pay Fifa is huge because of their actions.”
