KPL transfers: Bandari warns Gor Mahia to keep off Hassan Abdalla

Goal Kenya.
The Dockers were the first team to end K’Ogalo’s unbeaten record following a 2-1 home victory during the second leg match

Hassan Abdalla is not for sale. This is a stern message from Bandari CEO Edward Oduor towards Gor Mahia.

And it is in regards to reports that K’Ogalo are chasing for the signature of the Dockers’ speed demon and Harambee Stars trialist.

The CEO has scoffed at a section of media reports which indicated that his counterpart at Gor Mahia Lordick Aduda flew into Mombasa to seal a deal with Abdalla ahead of the new Kenya Premier League season.

In a strongly worded statement obtained by Goal, Oduor told Gor Mahia to keep off Abdalla and said that the Dockers will retain all the players, who are under coach Bernard Mwalala's game plan in bid to lift the KPL title the coming season.

“Bandari wish to state categorically that Hassan Abdalla like other players in the team have a binding contract with the club which must be honored legally. We therefore, have no intention of releasing him to join Gor Mahia or any potential suitors especially given that we are top contenders for the league title.”

The Dockers will kick-off the 2019 season on December 8, 2018, with a clash against Gor Mahia at the KPA Sports Club Mbaraki home turf.
