The Croatian reveals that he will leave the team he has helped turn around from relegation candidates to title challengers "if we don't agree on terms"
Gor Mahia coach Zdravko Logarusic has sensationally revealed that he may walk out of the Kenyan Premier League side at the end of the season.
The Croatian, who has been credited from turning the 'Kogalo' from relegation candidates to title challengers in a span of six months revealed this during a talk show with a popular Sports radio station in Nairobi.
“Listen, at the moment I am happy at Gor Mahia, and proud of the support from my employer, but it’s important to note that my association (contract) with them officially expires at the end of this season, then, we will have a round table discussion. If we agree well and good, if we don't - we'll part ways.”
The news will come as a surprise to many football followers in the country, but not to the club's administrators who have unsuccessfully tried hard to keep the former Ashanti Gold and King Faisal coach.
“We are talking to him, we are really impressed with what he has done for us so far, hopefully we will get an agreement in the near future,” said the club's secretary general George Bwana.
At the same time, Goal.com Kenya has reliably learnt that the Logarusic currently has offers from other African clubs and a national soccer team. The coach is believed to have tabled an offer to Gor Mahia that would see him treble his current wages but the club are at the moment looking to reach a compromise.
Another sticking issue that is said to have discouraged Logarusic - who reportedly walked out a gentleman's agreement with a Ghanian club to join Gor - is the delay in commitment from the club's sponsor's, who have yet to include the tactician's salary on their official payment roster of players and technical bench, forcing the club to pay the bill from its personal coffers.
