Doubts have emerged over the future of Gor Mahia coach Zradvko Logarusic after he failed to arrive in Nairobi on Wednesday morning as expected.

Instead, Goal have exclusively obtained an email written by the Croat tactician and sent to Gor Mahia chairman Ambrose Rachier complaining about issues he wants sorted out before he returns to Kenya.

Logarusic protested that he does not have a work permit and resides in Nairobi on a tourist visa.

Secondly he also raised issue about his lack of a formal contract with the club and expressed fears that a section of Gor Mahia officials have frustrated all efforts to sign a new improved deal.

Lastly, the coach fearful of his future insists he does not have an air-ticket that would allow him to return back home incase he is fired by Gor Mahia hierarchy.

“I have attached to you my tourist visa and a copy of my plane ticket to confirm to you that I don’t have a work permit and that I was just a visitor in Kenya.

“I don’t understand whether it was a conspiracy by the officials to organize for me a one way ticket because as a tourist you have to have a return ticket so that when you are done you have to go back,” wrote Logarusic in the email.

Regarding his contract he said: “Part of the Gor Mahia officials boycotted the signing of a new agreement between me and the club even though we had agreed on all the conditions. As a result I have been working without a formal contract.

“In this regard I cannot risk coming back to Kenya without a return ticket because if half of the office doesn’t want me anything can happen.”

Logarusic, who won a double –KPL Top 8 tournament and Kenya FA Domestic Cup – in his first season at K’Ogalo, left for holiday after the Kenya premiership took a break, and was expected on Wednesday to start preparing the team for the second leg.
