Former Gor Mahia captain Kenneth Muguna has confirmed his exit from the club ahead of his move to Dar es Salaam-based club Azam.
Taking to his social media, the 25-year-old Harambee Stars midfielder thanked Gor for giving him an opportunity to play for them.
“When I arrived at this great club, I was just a young man with dreams of representing the biggest team in the country. I didn’t expect things to go as well as they did but you made it a lot easier for me and not to forget the high level of players with so much quality who were always there to support and make me feel comfortable,” Muguna wrote on his social media.
“Looking at what I have achieved at the club is so satisfying. I was lucky enough to play under great coaches and great management as well as a bunch of good players. Thanks to the chairman [Ambrose Rachier] and the whole management for their effort in renewing my contract though I felt like I needed a new challenge. Thanks for the years we spent together and I hope that we enjoy the remaining matches.”
Muguna has already held talks with Azam FC though his deal is yet to be announced officially.
In an exclusive interview with Nation Sport last week, Azam Communication Director Zaka Zakazi revealed that the former K’Ogalo star was in Tanzania early this month to complete his deal.
“Muguna flew here and we are happy that at last, we have a player whom we have been chasing for the past three years despite strong resistance from Gor. What is only remaining before he joins us is the release letter from Gor,” said Zakazi.
This was Muguna’s second stint at Gor Mahia, having rejoined the club in 2018 from KF Tirana in Albania. His first stint was in 2017 after joining the team from Western Stima.
He leaves Gor after helping them to the FKF Betway Cup victory, securing a chance for the club to represent the country in next season’s Caf Confederations Cup tournament.
