Gor Mahia captain Haron Shakava has called for early preparation ahead of the 2018/19 Caf Champions League.

Shakava guided Gor Mahia to the 2018 Caf Confederation Cup after K’Ogalo were bundled out of the top tier by Tunisia’s Esperance on an aggregate and the skipper has now appealed to the management to bring on board more players to strengthen the squad.  

"We lacked depth in this season's continental campaign and hopefully the new players, who might join us, will help us improve," Shakava was quoted by the Standardmedia.co.ke.

"The competition starts earlier than usual and we must have a team that can compete favourably."
