HUGE BLOW FOR GOR MAHIA AS STRIKER QUITS
The hit-man whose contract with the Gor ended at the end of last season has called it quits after crucial contract renewal negotiations with the club hit the wall forcing the Rwanda international to opt for exit.
The latest hammering blow to the Frank Nuttall’s charges were confirmed by Gor Mahia’s chairman Ambrose Rachier who told the club’s website that the management could not oblige to the strikers’ ‘high demands’.
It is understood that the 29-year-old is being sought by other clubs who are willing to splash heavy amount of cash while K’Ogalo are offering a significantly less sign on fee for the forward who racked up thirteen goals last term in 30 games to become the clubs second top scorer behind Michael Olunga who plundered nineteen.
“We have tried our best to negotiate with Meddie Kagere but it’s quite unfortunate we will not be able to renew his contract because we can’t meet his high demands,” said Rachier.
Kagere, who is currently in his home country Rwanda for the holiday, joined the Green Army outfit in 2015 and signed a year-long contract that expired last December.
He was earlier omitted from the provisional squad that was submitted by the club to the Confederation of African Football (CAF) ahead of this year’s Champions League.
It is unclear however where the September (2015) SJAK-Sportpesa Player of the Month will be joining after leaving the SPL but the Daily Nation reports that Kagere had hinted a return to Europe.
“The KPL is very competitive. It is even more competitive than Rwanda and certainly more competitive than Uganda, but my aim is to return to Europe,” he said at the beginning of the 2015 campaign.
