Money is Our Hindrance – Kenyan Top Club Boss Reveals

The president of Kenyan serial league winners Gor Mahia reveals his side is faced with cash issues regarding funding their travel to Angola.

The president of Kenyan premier league serial winners, Gor Mahia, has revealed his side is faced with cash issues regarding funding their travel to Angola.

The government outfit are due to face Petro Atletico of Angola in the group D clash of the Confederation of African Football Champions League after trouncing Egypt’s Zamalek last weekend.

However, that travel is likely not to happen if the words of club president Ambrose Rachier are to go by.

Hoping for a bailout, the team have written to the East African country’s government technical arm, the sports ministry.

[perfectpullquote align=”full” cite=”” link=”” color=”” class=”” size=””] “As it stands now the only way is the Government intervention through the Ministry that will help us. We had a similar arrangement before, and it helped us a great deal.”   [/perfectpullquote]

“We have to concede among the hindrances to Gor Mahia’s journey in continental competitions is money. The team has proved that with money and all good support, anything is possible,” Rachier says, ahead of their scheduled departure to Luanda this month, insisting the sole money available in the coffers is the salary of players and the technical staff.

Teams competing the CAF CL group stage get US$275,000 richer, an amount which is not usually received in full by clubs considering that a number of deductions are made in technical costs, TV subscriptions and misconduct.
