In a span of days, Gor Mahia have managed, with a tinge of arrogance, to raid arch rivals AFC Leopards for two prime talents.
It begun with the record Kenyan champions luring youthful right back Yusuf Mainge – handing him a two-year contract and a fat pay cheque in sign on fee.
The icing on the cake, however, came on Tuesday when K’Ogalo, yet again, invaded the den – taking to the green side of life one of their most priced assets, Austin Odhiambo.
Mahia had in the past tried to sign Austin, a highly rated midfielder, who has featured for national youth sides, but his price tag of Ksh. 10 million was a deterrent.
Austin signing also left a sour taste in the mouth of Bandari FC, who were also after him and had reportedly lured him to the Coast-based side.
How Gor Mahia brought the player back to Nairobi and secured his signature remains a mystery.
K’Ogalo return to continental football with a trip to Suez, Egypt where they will face Sudan side Al Ahly Merowe in the CAF Confederation Cup on Friday next week.
Austin has been tauted as Kenneth Muguna’s replacement.
