Just like we reported yesterday, Kenyan League giants Gor Mahia has landed Ugandan international holding midfielder Geoffrey ‘Baba’Kizito. The combative midfielder has penned a long term deal with the Kenyans.
Club Secretary General George Bwana has revealed to RedPepper Online sport that the capture of the experienced mid field war horse will be a boost to K’Ogalo as they aim at reaching the group stages in the African championship that gets underway in February.
Bwana also said that another marquee signing in midfield and attack is on the horizon.
He adds the signing was part of an overhaul of the team aimed at challenging for honours both on the local and international stage.
“Signing players like Baba, who are of international calibre, is in line with our long-term plan to compete,” he told this paper.
Former Uganda coach Bobby Williamson who handles the club was quoted by local newspapers that the Uganda international would “be very influential in the middle of the park”.
“I have brought him up from a tender age. He is a wonderful player.”
He joins fellow Cranes players Dan Sserunkuma and Geoffrey Walusimbi at the Kenyan club.
