A senior Gor Mahia player was recently forced to walk out on the club in the wake of a love triangle involving another player, Nairobi News can exclusively reveal.
The situation is said to have spiraled out of control in the past year, when the ‘guilty’ player – who has played for Gor Mahia for several seasons and is also a Kenya international – reportedly eloped with a lady who happens to be another player’s girlfriend.
At that time, the cuckolded player was playing at another club.
He however would secure a move to K’Ogalo in December, a transfer that brought him face-to-face with his new teammate who snatched his girlfriend.
To avert a possible confrontation in the training ground and on the pitch, the ‘girlfriend snatcher’ hastened a last minute move from K’Ogalo even though he had committed to signing a new deal just a few months back.
“There was no chance these two players could reconcile and even play together. No chance. The management couldn’t imagine a situation where one is supposed to create an assist, or even communicate to the other on the pitch. Which is a shame, because both players are of good quality,” a source told Nairobi News.
