George Bwana set to make comeback at Gor Mahia

Former Gor Mahia secretary general George Bwana could be set to make a return to the club, Nairobi News understands.

Sources have revealed that Bwana was recently informally approached by the club’s hierarchy to take over as chief executive officer.

This follows the recent chaos that marked the club’s preparation ahead of the Caf Confederation Cup play-off against SuperSport United.

The team reportedly almost missed out on honoring the away match in South Africa owing to Visa hitches and lack of air tickets.

“Now that we are in the group stage, there is need for stability. We need someone with experience to help us plan to compete both on the continent and the domestic front,” a source at the club told Nairobi News.

GREAT SUCCESS

“He (Bwana) could also help in bridging the gap between the management and fans. At the moment, we have officials who only quarrel on social media,” the source added.

Bwana’s stint as secretary of the club was highlighted by great success, following a decision to hire coaches Bobby Williamson and Zdravko Logarusic.

The club won a league title and two domestic cups during his spell in charge.

The 39-year old is still involved in the football despite opting not to defend his post four years ago.

He has opened a football agency which he uses to market footballers and he is also pursuing a Masters Degree in Sports Administration and Management at the Nelson Mandela University in South Africa.
