Gor Mahia has appealed the decision by the Confederation of African Football to knock them out of the champions league tournament.
CAF kicked out the champions of the Kenya Premier league 2022/23 season after failing to meet club licensing rules to participate in the league.
“As it is, Gor will not play in the CAF CL because they have not met the payment deadline. Unless CAF thinks otherwise, which will be difficult, they will not be in the Champions League. They had been given enough time but have failed to adhere,” a source at the Federation said.
In its appeal, Gor Mahia says it has attained the requirement that led to its licencing certificate be revoked by paying three of its players Adama Keita, Sando sando, Jules Ulimwengu their dues
It however unlikely for CAF to lift the revocation for Gor Mahia since the team meets very few requirement including having a ladies in the premier league to participate in the competition
This is not the first time Gor is being embroiled in such a case with a recent one, a former player auctioning the teams buses to settle his due.
At the same time, sources intimate that Gor and their arch nemesis AFC Leopards might also be kicked out of the FKF Premier League as CAF also wants to strip them of their club licenses due to issues of payment.
AFC allegedly owe their immediate former coach Patrick Aussems close to Sh20mn of unpaid salary arrears.
