Gor Mahia Cleared to Participate In CAF Confederations Cup
Written by Odhiambo Shem on August 5, 2021
FIFA has finally cleared Kenyan giants Gor Mahia to take part in the CAF confederations Cup slated to kick off in the second week of September. This follows a clear proof to FIFA that the club has gotten into agreement with their former coach Steve Pollack and even paid him Ksh. 700,000 advance with an agreement of further monthly payments.
The club’s Sports Director Lordvick Aduda says that FIFA wanted them to pay in full or agree on a payment model. Pollack had earlier been told by FIFA to confirm the authenticity of the agreement as of 29th July for the sanctions to be lifted and according to Aduda, FIFA confirmed the existence of the agreement and they are now free to be part of the second most ranked tournament in the continent.
FIFA had written to Gor Mahia through CAF, directing them to pay Pollack his dues or come into an agreement on how he would be paid before they could be allowed to participate in the CAF Confederations Cup.
The club has further written to CAF stating that they will settle Tanzania’s winger Dickson Ambundo’s dues once CAF hands them Ksh. 6 million that they deserve for reaching the second round of the CAF Champions League preliminaries last season.
