Keep off Gor Mahia, Kerr blasts ex-coach Ze Maria

Gor Mahia coach Dylan Kerr has blasted his predecessor Jose Ferreira, aka Ze Maria, whom he accuses of tapping his players.

Three of K’Ogallo’s players, namely Kenneth Muguna, Jacques Tuyisenge and Geoffrey Walusimbi, have recently been linked with moves to Albanian club FK Tirana, currently managed by Ze Maria.

In fact, Gor Mahia assistant secretary general Ronald Ngala on Wednesday confirmed to Nairobi News that Muguna had submitted a transfer request.

This development has understandably irked Kerr, who sees Ze Maria’s invisible hand behind it.

“Ze Maria should leave Kenneth alone,” Kerr fumed.


“The player is under contract at Gor Mahia and I do not want him to leave. It seems Ze Maria has tapped him up. Since he left Gor Mahia and I am now in charge, I ask him to leave the club alone.”

Not yet done, Kerr took a cheeky swipe by questioning the quality of the Albanian league and suggesting it wont be the ideal environment for the 21 year-old attacking midfielder .

“Albania is not quite renowned as a footballing country and I understand Tirana play in the second division. Muguna is a quality player and if he remains patient, he could get the chance to play in a better European league.”

Kerr, an English trainer who formerly managed Tanzania giant club Simba, boasts a hundred per cent winning record as K’Ogalo coach in competitive matches having picked up back to back league wins against Nakumatt.

His next assignment in the league is away to Muhoroni Youth on Saturday.
