Gor Mahia are contemplating pulling out of Cecafa Kagame Cup that kicks-off next week.
Goal now understands that the decision by players to boycott training is forcing officials from the Kenyan champions to withdraw the team from the regional tournament.
“As things stand, we are going to pull out of the tournament. It is a difficult situation that we find ourselves in but we have no option than to withdraw,” a top club official told Goal on Thursday.
The official as also warned Gor Mahia players to resume training or else they will be replaced. “The players and the technical bench received their allowances after winning the Super Cup, and if a player tells you otherwise then it is a lie.
“We will be forced to punish some of the players if they don’t resume training. All these players have signed contracts with us meaning they were contented with what we were offering. Going against a written and signed document is breach of contract and we can take action.”
Gor Mahia were due to kick-off their Kagame Cup campaign with a match against Rwandan champions Rayon Sports on July 1, take on Lydia before winding up their Group C campaign against Ports on July 4.
Yanga of Tanzania and St. Georges of Ethiopia are among the teams that have already withdrawn from the tournament and have since been replaced by Singida United and APR of Rwanda.
