Gor Mahia, AFC Leopards in rare solidarity
Arch rivals Gor Mahia and AFC Leopards have put a rare united front saying they have read malice over world governing body Fifa decision to investigate their transfer dealings.
Fifa officials are expected in the country before the weekend to extensively to probe allegations lodged against them by players who claim they were not paid their transfer monies by the clubs.
Starting with Gor chairman Ambrose Rachier, the city barrister said there the club has not been briefed on the coming visit Fifa while insisting all dealing by the club have strictly followed the law.
"I am reading all this in the local dailies, In fact as club we have nothing to fear about since there is nothing to hide or in that matter we’ve not gone against the laid down rules and regulations concerning transfers,"
Rachier further hinted the impeding visit is suspect coming at the time the former Kenyan Premier League chairman is entangled in the feud between Football Kenya Federation (FKF) President, Nick Mwendwa and the club chairman.
"The writings are on the wall and it seems someone is out to frustrate the club. I am afraid that is not the light channel to solve issues,"
Rachier also said Gor have filed their financial returns of the past two years with FKF as required with while saying the delay in the 2017 Kenyan Premier League (KPL) kick-off is unhealthy for the sport.
Dan Mule , chairman FC Leopards acknowledged, there might have been cases of the club failing to remit transfer monies to players in the previous regimes something he distanced his administration with.
"All the dealings we have conducted since taking over are on the table and there is nothing to hide in that regard. If there were irregularities before, they should have been dealt with at that time. I feel like someone is trying to drag us to the mad,"
Before meeting with Fifa officials, the two clubs have been instructed to submit their financial statements for the past two years. It is not yet clear what kind of punishment should follow should the clubs be found guilty on any wrong doings in regards to player signings and transfers.
