The two stars made headlines recently when they moved from Ingwe to their archrivals K’Ogalo
Gor Mahia sporting director Omondi Aduda has claimed they did not weaken their Football Kenya Federation Premier League traditional rivals AFC Leopards by signing Yusuf Mainge and Austin Odhiambo.
Odhiambo became the second player to join K’Ogalo recently after Mainge had completed a two-year deal.
At the time we were engaging Mainge and Odhiambo, they had release letters from AFC Leopards. For your information, our latest acquisition [Odhiambo] has basically been training with Bandari for almost two weeks.”
We have not engaged any contracted players. When Odhiambo failed to agree on terms with Bandari, we called him, met, talked and he agreed to join us. If anything, there is a need for AFC Leopards and Gor Mahia to look at ways they can sustain their players so that there is continuity with respect to the contracts.”
Odhiambo completed a deal from AFC Leopards to Gor Mahia on Tuesday and Aduda believes the move will help make it easier for players to cross from either side.
“But there is nothing peculiar about signing a player from AFC,” Aduda added.
“This is football and we must use it to break some of these traditional barriers. In the past, it was difficult for players to switch between the two clubs, but the barrier was eventually broken.”
