The situation at Kenyan champions Gor Mahia is becoming messy after four players handed in release letters to quit the giants.

This comes just a day after K’Ogalo lost their fourth straight match in all competitions after going down 2-0 to Ulinzi Stars. It was Gor Mahia’s third defeat in the league, having succumbed 2-1 to Bandari and by a solitary goal to relegation bound Thika United.

A source within the club has now told Goal that captain Harun Shakava is among the four players, who have shown their desire to quit the club at the end of the season. “As we speak, four players have handed in their transfer requests, and the same letters have already reached the club chairman.”

Goal understands the other three players include defender Charles Momanyi, midfielder Humphrey Mieno and Francis Kahata. “They are fed up, they are not ready to continue suffering, they have made a decision and it is now upon the club to act accordingly.”

When reached for comment, Gor Mahia coach Dylan Kerr denied knowledge of the players’ asking to ditch K’Ogalo. “You are telling me something that I don’t understand and I honestly haven’t heard anything to do with any letters.”

On Wednesday after the match against Ulinzi Stars, Gor Mahia players were given Sh15, 000 by the Team Manager that was shared amongst the players.
