Gor Mahia have received a massive boost ahead of the 2020/21 CAF Champions League after world football body cleared four of their players who recently joined the team.

That means the quartet –  Burundian Jules Ulimwengu from Rayon Sports, Tito Okello from Vipers of Uganda, Cameroonian Bertrand Konfor, formerly of Al Mudhabi of Oman, and John Macharia who previously featured for FC Guria Lanchkhuti’s of Georgia – will also be available for the continental fixtures.

As per FIFA regulations, all transfers of players between countries must go through a process to get an International Transfer Certificate (ITC) – a certificate provided from one national association to another to facilitate the transfer.

The new players who joined from foreign clubs are now free to be registered at CAF for continental assignments – the registration window opens on October 21.

At the same time midfielder John Macharia told the club website that he’s delighted following the latest developments since he is now among the many free players to play for the club.

“I am so happy to receive the news that the ITC application process has successfully gone through. It’s a good feeling… my previous club wanted me to go back and so, I wasn’t sure what was in store about my move to Gor Mahia,” he told the club website

“This is good for me because it feels good to train with a team knowing well you are free to play in any competitive match. Now, I have to work… and work hard to achieve the best at my new club,” said Macharia.
