Gor Mahia secretary general George Bwana reveals to Goal that they will not hesitate to replace the Croat tactician who is yet to return from holiday

Kenya Premier League side Gor Mahia Secretary General George Bwana insists the club will not be held hostage by coach Zradvko Logarusic.

Bwana said while the club is still open to receive the coach back, they will not hesitate to replace him if need arises.

“He (Loga) is our coach and by now he should be here preparing the club for their weekend match against Karuturi Sports,” Bwana told Goal.

“He has his ticket but we are not allowing his absence to affect us. John ‘Bobby’ Ogolla is preparing the team for the Sunday match and I want to say that as officials of the club, we will have to make a decision on his future if he will not have come back by Sunday.

“The club is bigger than all of us and we cannot allow one person to hold us hostage. At some point we have to make a decision and move on,” added Bwana.

On Wednesday, Goal exclusively revealed an email sent by the Croat tactician to Gor Mahia chairman Ambrose Rachier demanding for a number of issues to be sorted out before he returns from holiday.

Logarusic protested that he does not have a work permit and resides in Nairobi on a tourist visa.

Secondly he also raised issue about his lack of a formal contract with the club and expressed fears that a section of Gor Mahia officials have frustrated all efforts to sign a new improved deal.

Lastly, the coach fearful of his future insisted he does not have an air-ticket that would allow him to return back home in case he is fired by Gor Mahia hierarchy.
