Gor Mahia continue their squad reinforcement ahead of the 2020/21 Kenya Premier League season. Their latest acquisition is ex Mathare United center back Andrew Juma who has penned a three-year deal with the 18 time KPL champions.
Speaking with the clubs’ website on his official unveiling, Juma referred to his move as a “big challenge” for his career whilst noting that joining K’Ogalo is an offer he could not turn down.
“Gor Mahia is a big team and no player can hesitate if that chance comes his way…. The fans are just something else and l know it will be a good experience and a different playing environment because I have to give 120% which to any player is a good challenge.”
The defender thanked Mathare United through a Facebook post after he completed his move.
“I appreciate Mathare United FC management and all the players for the role they have played in my career.”
“This has been my home for the last four seasons. I believe this is the right time for me to move on. Thus, it is with
overwhelming emotion that I move to take on a new challenge that I have always envisaged.”
“I will forever be grateful to have been a slum boy. The experiences we’ve had together has made me stronger as a professional football player and I would not revise a word in my story or my past if it led me back to your door.”
Juma is Gor’s fifth signing after the arrivals of John Macharia, Tito Okello, Levis Opiyo and John Ochieng.
Prior to joining K’Ogalo, he played for Dandora Youth, Posta Rangers and Mathare United.
