Gor Mahia coach Steven Polack says the club's players shouldn't blame him for not fighting for their salaries as Kenya battles the coronavirus pandemic.
Polack said he's shocked by reports that players are blaming him for being quiet as they fight for their wages from the club leadership on their own.
He insisted he should not be on the receiving end since he doesn't pay salaries, and blamed those who are not happy with his presence at the club for inciting players against him.
Even though Gor players have gone for several months without pay, the management has once in a while chipped in with little cash to cushion them during these hard times.
The financial cash crunch has not only hit the Kenyan champions, but also their arch-rivals AFC Leopards and other Kenyan Premier League clubs whose players have gone without pay due to lack of sponsorship following the exit of prime sponsors SportPesa in August last year.
