Kenya: Gor's Mahia's Rama Set for Trials Abroad

Kenya Premier league side, Gor Mahia have urged their players to go through the right procedure when seeking to go for trials abroad or with any other club.

Secretary general George Bwana, responding to reports that their key player, Rama Salim, was set for trials with various overseas clubs notably in the Far East and in Europe, Bwana said they were not against their players seeking greener pastures but there was a procedure to be followed.

"We as a club are not aware of any move by any of our players to go for trials anywhere because there is a certain manner in which such issues are carried out," explained Bwana.

Rama opted out from the national football team, Harambee Stars squad that reported to camp on Wednesday. The former Congo United skipper scored 11 goals to help Gor Mahia finish second in the league as well as win two trophies (tTop 8 Cup and FKF Cup).

"The players may not be in breach of their contract because they are merely going fro trials but it is important if we are made aware of the same," stated Bwana.

The media shy Rama failed to respond to calls made to him but an acquaintance who answered his mobile phone, said the player was not in a mood to discus the particular subject.
