Musa Mohammed falls victim to Tirana ‘curse’; Albanian club ends his contract

Former Gor Mahia captain Musa Mohammed is the latest Kenyan player to be hit by the FK Tirana ‘curse’, after being let go by the Albanian club.

Mohammed, who also captained Harambee Stars to victory in the 2017 Cecafa Senior Challenge Cup in Machakos, has had his contract terminated barely four months after signing a two-year contract with the club.

Tirana’s Brazilian coach Ze Maria, who worked with Mohammed at Gor Mahia, explained to SokaEast that the Kenya international centre back failed to settle at the club.


“The player never adapted here in Europe and from the first day he had difficulties with food, climate, training intensity and many other things,” Ze Maria said.

Mohammed, who close sources say is already seeking another club, joins an ever swelling list of Kenyan players who have failed to make it at Tirana.

Other Kenyan players who passed through Tirana in recent years are Francis Kahata, who is currently at Gor Mahia, James Situma of Kakamega Homeboyz and Brian Marita.

Tirana is also home to Kenneth Muguna, another Kenya international, who is rumored to be unsettled at the club.
