K’Ogalo players stepped up the ongoing go-slow to a whole new level when, for the third time this week, they failed to show up

Gor Mahia players have threatened to skip weekend league match against Thika United if the management doesn’t clear their arrears by Friday.

K’Ogalo players stepped up the ongoing go-slow to a whole new level when, for the third time this week, they failed to show up for Thursday’s training session.

The players are demanding for August pay and bonuses dating back to six games which have not been forthcoming. “No one reported for training today (Thursday),” a source within the team revealed to Goal.

The latest development now leaves coach Dylan Kerr with a possibility of fielding a misfit squad, if at all, he will rally his charges to honour the formality tie when the champions take on Thika United on Saturday.

The only consolation for Kerr is the fact that Gor Mahia have already won the league. But the players have vowed they will never turn up for the game against Thika United if the situating is not arrested by Saturday.

"When we were in the Caf Confederation Cup, things were better. but now that we are out no one wants to pay attention. If they do not want to pay us our salaries, where will we get the money to feed ourselves? Things are not good and we cannot keep quiet.

"Thika United game is coming, no preparation whatsoever. How will we play? We have tried to seek an audience from the office but none is willing to speak to us," a top player, who refused to be named, told Goal.

After winning the league, Gor Mahia is once again preparing for the Caf Champions League next season.
