Coach Dylan Kerr was also suspended for two years following his outbursts in this year’s edition that was won by Azam FC

Gor Mahia FC was suspended from taking part in Cecafa Cup for the next two years following disciplinary issues.

Coach Dylan Kerr was also suspended for two years following his outbursts in this year’s edition. A top soruce within the club has revealed to Goal the reason behind players’ snub for medals despite beating JKU 2-0 to finish third.

“Everything is not well here because we feel the management is not honoring our agreement. We were promised 14% of the revenue gained from our progression in the continental assignments.

"Even after the monies were paid by Caf, the club did not do as promised, not even a single cent was deposited in our accounts.

“Players expected to be rewarded after finishing third in Dar, but later it emerged that monies were to be deposited in the accounts of individual teams. That irked the anger of the players, who felt cheated, knowing the management will take time before rewarding them.

“In unison, the players refused to go for their medals and no one could convince them otherwise. Yes, it was a bad show but that was the only way to send our message to others.”

As a result, the organizers have also decided not to reward the Kenyan champions Sh1million they won for finishing third.
