Former Gor Mahia players reunite with Ze Maria at European club – PHOTOS
Former Gor Mahia players Kenneth Muguna and Musa Mohammed have completed transfers to Europe.
The two were unveiled at Albanian second tier club FK Tirana where they will be reunited with Brazilian coach Jose Marcelo Ferreira aka Ze Maria, who worked with them at Gor Mahia earlier on.
Muguna, 22, is expected to fetch Gor Mahia about sh4 million in transfer fees in this protracted move that has dragged on since last August when he submitted a transfer request at K’Ogalo.
“Muguna has signed today a contract for four and a half years and is an important investment of the club for the current season and the future,” said FK Tirana in a statement on their Facebook page.
Muguna told Nairobi News: “I am so excited this transfer has happened because I wanted it so much. Initially I had pegged my faith on the coach (Ze Maria) because he has really improved me as a player. Now, I have seen the facilities at the club and I am even more determined.”
Mohammed, who’s captained Gor Mahia for the past two seasons, has penned a two and a half year deal at the club.
The central defender turned down a move to top Zambian club Lusaka Dynamos in favour of this transfer.
Mohammed had dramatically changed his mind and asked to be released by Gor Mahia on a free transfer in December, three weeks after committing to a three year contract.
The Kenyan league champions have replaced Muguna and Mohammed with Humphrey Mieno and Charles Momanyi respectively, ahead of the Kenya Premier League campaign which is set to kick off on February 3.
