McKinstry sends warning to rivals as Gor Mahia unveil New Signings: No room for ‘Small’ Players

Gor Mahia head coach Jonathan McKinstry has criticized the team’s transfer strategy over the last two years, citing poor quality signings as the reason for their poor performance.

The coach has vowed that the club will only sign top-quality players moving forward.

Gor Mahia should not sign small players. As long as I am here, the type of players we sign are either top top quality players or the next generation of top talent,” the tactician told Capital Sports.

This announcement comes after the club settled their tussle with payments of former players and acquired the services of defender Emery Bayisenge and striker Patrick Kaddu, who had worked with McKinstry at the Rwanda and Uganda national teams.

“I have worked with Emery and I know his character and the quality he brings. Kaddu is alsoa great addition to the team with almost 20 caps with the Uganda national team. These are not small players. Sylvester and Enock are great exciting talent and the future of Harambee Stars,” noted the Irishman.

McKinstry believes that the club’s recent signings have not been up to par and that the players brought in should be those who can slot straight into the team’s system.

He emphasizes the need for players who know the team’s tactical approach and possess the necessary character. McKinstry was confident that Bayisenge and Kaddu’s presence in the team would be a boost to their bid to win the Premier League title.

The team is also expected to sign defender Sylvester Owino from kakamega Homeboyz and midfielder Enock Wanyama, formerly with Kariobangi Sharks. McKinstry spoke highly of the new signings, noting that he had worked with Emery and knows the character and quality he brings.

He added that Kaddu’s experience playing with the Uganda national team made him a great addition to the team. Sylvester and Enock are also exciting talents and the future of Harambee Stars, he said.

Despite the team’s recent struggles, McKinstry believes that the squad has enough quality to compete for the league title this season. He stated that the team has been working quietly and keeping a low profile, avoiding the media limelight. McKinstry believes that the game is won on the pitch and not through media hype.

Currently sitting at the top of the FKF Premier League standings with 37 points after 17 matches.
