Kenyan Premier League champions Gor Mahia could play a friendly match against Brazilian giants Santos FC.

The warm-up is tentatively planned for 1 December 2018 in Nairobi.

According to Gor’s Chief Executive Officer Lordvick Aduda, an agency wrote to them requesting for the match but details remain scanty.

“There’s still nothing much to report but the thing is an agency wrote to Gor Mahia for a possible friendly with Santos.

“As you know such an international game requires alot of procedures to be followed before it can be staged but I can say it is highly likely to happen,” Aduda told Kahawa Tungu.

Gor will play Everton of England in an international friendly at Goodison Park on 6 November.

The fixture will form part of K’Ogalo’s preseason as they plot to defend their KPL title and represent Kenya in the CAF Champions League next season.
