MIA Johanna fuels Gor, Leopards links

Eric Johanna was conspicuously absent in the second day of Mathare United's pre-season training amid reports that the Kenyan international is being in the radar of KPL pair of AFC Leopards and Gor Mahia.

The midfielder was a key target of the former KPL champions in better part of last season though the Slum Boys ultimately succeeded in fending off K'Ogalo's interest.

However with Gor's seemingly unrelenting in their chase, Johanna's continued absence in the team's training base at Goan has only worked in adding to the speculations of him closing in on a move.


-He (Johanna) is yet to report back for the team's pre-season. He wasn't part of the first session on Monday either and also skipped today's training, a source close to the player intimated to Futaa.

Gor has already drafted in a number of players for the new season with more signings set to be completed in the near future as revealed by the club.

In addition to Johanna, Whyvonne Isuza is another big name nearing exit from the club with Leopards linked with the attacking midfielder.
