The keeper was one of the outstanding players for K’Ogalo, although the team struggled and lost the Premier League title to Tusker
Gor Mahia goalkeeper Gad Mathews has confirmed he has received transfer offers from local and foreign clubs, including one from Sweden.
Mathews was on most occasions last year K’Ogalo’s biggest choice for goals and made remarkable contributions especially in the FKF Cup.
His heroic saves against Bidco United in the semi-final and against AFC Leopards in the final ensured that Gor Mahia lifted the local cup after being without one for nine years.
“I have already received calls from top clubs who have shown genuine interest in obtaining my signature. Other offers have come from as far as Sweden, but to be honest, I do not want to make an undecided decision that I can regret later, Said Mathews The star.
‘I want to take enough time to search through the transactions and seek advice from people who are more familiar with these types of matters.
“There is no doubt about it. I have been approached by a number of clubs and I might as well consider jumping in if my problems are not addressed immediately.
‘We’ve already started talks about extending my contract with Gor Mahia, and I may decide to quit depending on what they offer.
Mathews signed for the local giants at the start of the 2020/21 season at Kisumu All-Stars and regrets not receiving his registration fee.
“I have not yet received the registration fee I promised when I joined Kisumu All-Stars at Gor. I have been going without payment for a few months now,” the former star of Kariobangi Sharks revealed.
“I have some bills to pay. I’ve been locked out of my apartment several times already. It’s also getting me busy attending training at Camp Toyoyo because I can barely raise bus fares.”
With the expected departure of Boniface Oluoch, Mathews is considered the natural replacement for the former Tusker goalkeeper who has been with Gor Mahia for more than seven seasons.
Gor Mahia, who appointed Mark Harrison as the new head coach after the departure of Manuel Vaz Pinto at the end of last season, has already started pre-season training.
