Musa Mohammed, Kenneth Muguna off to Albanian FK Tirana

Kenya Premier League champions duo of Musa Mohammed and Kenneth Muguna have been released by the club to join Albanian second tie FK Tirana.

The pair have already agreed personal terms over a two-year contract and will make it formal once they land in the Albanian capital.

Mohammed leaves Gor as a free agent while Muguna who joined the record 16-time champions from Western Stima at the beginning of last season.

The defender has been a loyal Gor Mahia player having spent his entire eight year professional career at the club. He joined straight from High School in 2010 when the club was under the tutelage of legendary coach James Siang’a.

He was scouted by another former Gor coach Gideon Ochieng who has since relocated to the United States.

The defender leaves Gor Mahia with a decorated hat having won four league titles, three of them as captain, one KPL Top 8 and two FKF Cup titles

He was crowned defender of the year by the Sports Journalists Association of Kenya (SJAK) at the end of last season having finished second twice in the annual awards in 2015 and 2016.

Mohammed also ended 2017 having helped the national team Harambee Stars to the CECAFA Senior Challenge Cup.

The duo will set foot on a ground that erstwhile has been a tough stomping ground for Kenyan players. Moses Arita and James Situma famously landed at the Albanian club but failed to settle, coming back home.

The two find Tirana perched at fifth spot on the Albanian First Division table, just within the promotion bracket. With 12 matches already played, Tirana are on 17 points, 12 behind leaders Kastrioti Kruje.
