Mahia Coach Slams Chiefs & Walusimbi Amid Transfer Battle

Dylan Kerr, the head coach of Gor Mahia, has slammed Kaizer Chiefs for their conduct in their pursuit of Godfrey Walusimbi, saying they have, allegedly, ‘acted illegally’.
 
 
The Siya crew reported last week that the Ugandan international had made his way onto the Amakhosi wish list, and it was later revealed that he may had flown to South Africa without the permission of his club.
 
Walusimbi, 29, has a contract  in place with Mahia until 2020 and his coach is fuming at his actions, calling him ‘selfish’ as his side chase the Kenyan Premier League title and a place in the CAF Confederation Cup knockout stages.
 
Speaking to the crew this week, Kerr said, “My club will never stand in a player’s way of moving, that’s their philosophy, but what has to be done right is the approach of any player. My issue is that Walusimbi’s agents have acted inappropriately, dishonestly and sneakily.
 
“Kaizer Chiefs have acted illegally, and they know they have done wrong, but my concern is how a player, my player, thinks that he has the right to just up and go to another team fully knowing that he is contracted to the club.
 
“This is the second time that he’s acted selfishly, thinking about himself and not his club, the fans, but even more so, his teammates. In CAF he may have contributed to our defeat v Esperance by not playing, and now - with us needing three wins to retain the league title, and we also have the Confederation Cup still to qualify – he’s taken upon himself to just leave without my permission.
 
“That’s a total lack of respect, and unless Chiefs offer - in this football market - a transfer fee, Walusimbi is going nowhere… He will be disciplined by the club, and both Chiefs and his agent will be reported to CAF and FIFA for the illegal tapping of a player under contract.”
 
The current whereabouts of Walusimbi are unknown after Bobby Motaung recently confirmed in the media that he was in South Africa, although it has been confirmed that – as of Wednesday – he is still not back training with Mahia in Nairobi.
