- Steven Polack, Gor Mahia head coach is not doubtful that Peter Odhiambo’s exit will not bring down the goalkeeping department. This arose after the club yesterday confirmed that they had parted company with Odhiambo who is now reported to be on his way to Wazito.
“Peter Odhiambo parts ways with Gor Mahia on mutual agreement. We thank him for his contribution to the success of the club and wish him the very best in his endeavors,” posted on the club’s verified social media account.
After Wazito released Steven Njungé and Kevin Omondi, they currently have one goalkeeper, Bixente Otieno. The club also confirmed the exit of Dickson Ambundo who arrived at the club at the beginning of the 2019-2020 season albeit on loan from Alliance FC.
Another post on social media account said; “We wish Dickson Ambundo all the best after his loan deal at the club ended and has since returned to Tanzania. We appreciate every bit of his efforts while at Gor Mahia.”
Gor Mahia signed Levis Opiyo last week from Nairobi City Stars and will compete for playing time with the experienced duo Boniface Oluoch and David Mapigano.
“He wasn’t getting sufficient playing time and we had to painfully let him seek it elsewhere. He is a quality goalkeeper whom I believe at some point he will return to the club. He loved the club and the fans loved him too. We are left with three glove men including the new signing, Opiyo who will get the job done in the new season and the subsequent ones, “Aston Villa fan explained.
“We have to bring in new players to strengthen a few areas we have identified. We don’t want to repeat the past mistakes of signing more than half a dozen players. It works against the existing chemistry between the players whom I worked with last season,” he said.
