- Gor Mahia coach Steven Polack has insisted that the club is broke and has not thought of discussing new signings with the club as “there is no money to support my transfer activities.”
While Polack has already identified a few players he would love to bring to strengthen the squad, the financial situation at the club has forced him to wait for things to improve.
After the Confederation of African Football (Caf) confirmed K’Ogalo as Kenya’s representatives in the lucrative Champions League for next season, it means they (K’Ogalo) will have to strengthen their squad if they are to make a mark in the competition.
“Sorry, for now, I cannot talk about signings when the club does not have any money for the business,” Polack said.
“Let me give you a very good example, let’s say you are a player and I am talking to you, by the way, please I will like you come and play for my club, this is the reason why and tell me about you, you explain to me and then you ask me, what about the finances, do you have the money?
“That will be one of your questions and currently, Gor Mahia doesn’t have the money,” he explained.
Polack also revealed that he cannot pledge thing will be well because the situation is bad. He insisted he can discuss anything about transfers.
“For me, I don’t want to tell players to come to play for us when we don’t have money when you want to sign a player I always talk to the management first, how much money do we have? And then I can bring in my new players, but the case, for now, is different at Gor Mahia because we don’t have money,” he concluded.
Recently, Polack revealed he was praying hard that Gor will retain all his players for the coming season.
It is understood that several players that include their captain Kenneth Muguna have already expressed the desire to move to greener pastures if they get good offers as the Kenyan champions are struggling to pay salaries to players and the technical bench.
