Gor Mahia are negotiating for an improved deal with their current shirt sponsors. The team is sponsored by Tuzo, but in the recent past there have been complaints that the Sh38million two year deal is inadequate.
Gor Mahia Secretary General George Bwana said they are expecting a better deal when they sign a new contract at the end of March and hinted that the club could go elsewhere if they don’t get what they want.
“Our current deal with Tuzo is only able to pay salaries for the players. There are many other obligations that the club has to meet like paying bonuses and salaries for the technical bench which the current deal does not include."
“We hope that Tuzo will listen to us and give us a better deal otherwise we will go elsewhere,” he told Goal.com.
The Tuzo deal was signed two years ago and it was the first shirt sponsorship for the club which has been in existence for more than 30 years.
Bwana said the club has brought great value to Tuzo and the company ought to reciprocate by giving them more money.
“Every time we are mentioned or there is a picture in the media, Tuzo gets the mileage. This has helped build their brand in a great way and it is only fair that they reciprocate," added Bwana.
