“It is true that Gor Mahia have reached out to Da Rosa. It was through a phone call done by club chairman and they both discussed a number of things. All I can reveal is the salary they offered to pay him and nothing more. I am not sure whether the coach is ready to take the offer.

The source added, “Da Rosa is a good coach and it is not a problem for him to work in Kenya since he has already worked in Rwanda with Rayon Sports...in Cameroon with Cotton Sports and Algeria for Constantine where he was fired and since that he is in the second division league in Algeria.”
