Gor Mahia midfielder Muguna sad to see Ze Maria leave
Gor Mahia midfielder Kenneth Muguna has paid a glowing tribute to the club’s departing coach Jose Ferreira aka Ze Maria, referring to the ex-Brazilian international as the “pillar” on which the first team’s recent success was built on.
The youngster only worked under the Brazilian trainer for six months, having joined the 15-time Kenyan champions from Western Stima in a high profile deal last December.
Ze Maria abruptly walked out of the club on Thursday having penned an emotional resignation letter addressed to club chairman Ambrose Rachier, although Nairobi News has gathered that the relationship between this pair was anything but rosy.
“I am extremely gutted to see you leave. But I’m convinced all will be well. Thanks for being a pillar to us. And all the best for the future,” Muguna said.
Ze Maria, who leaves Gor Mahia perched on top of the Kenyan Premier League table after 13 rounds of matches, is rumoured to be headed for Europe from where he is expected to consider an array of offers on his stable.
