K’ogalo players reveal to Goal they are unhappy officials have declined to pay prize money from winning KPL adding it contributed to Saturday's defeat
Gor Mahia players want club officials to pay them part of the prize money the team is entitled to for winning Kenyan Premier League and finishing runners-up in GOtv Shield last year.
The players, who requested not to be named, revealed to Goal on Monday that they are unhappy that club officials have declined to address the issue which is beginning to affect morale in camp.
The players even hinted that it could have resulted in the team's 2-0 defeat at the hands of promoted side Nakuru Top Fry in Nakuru on Saturday.
"We have turned up for training today (Monday) but are unhappy with how officials are handling the issue. This is our right and we ought to have been paid by now.”
But the claims were dismissed by Gor Mahia coach Bobby Williamson who said the players are happy and still have passion to turn out for the club. "We are not disgruntled. The players are very proud to put on the jersey and to turn out for the team even without being paid. They play for the passion and not money.”
Goal also established that club officials were scheduled to discuss the matter among other issues later on Monday.
