Simba SC star-striker Meddie Kagere has broken his silence on his protracted transfer saga blaming the Kenyan Premier League champions Gor Mahia for not showing him enough love.

In a post-match interview here in Dar es Salaam in the wake of his goal which fired Simba to the quarter-finals of the Cecafa Kagame Cup, Meddie did not mince his words, twisting the knife on the back of K’Ogalo.

Asked on the hullabaloo that has greeted his move with the club claiming he had asked for permission to visit his home country only to end up at Simba, Kagere said: “I didn’t have a contract with Gor Mahia .It had elapsed. They took their time to talk to me when my contract ran out. Those who loved me the most got me…. If somebody lures you with something better don’t you take it?

He went on: “Love is when you get what you want. When people show you love and they want you, you join them.”

Kagere’s move shocked many a Kenya football lover with the club’s fans taking to social media to vent out their anger at losing the talisman.

At K’Ogalo, Kagere was an important cog featuring prominently in the team’s assignments as they bagged the league title last term and also made an impression in the Caf-Confederations Cup where they are in the group stages.

A striker of remarkable quality who has showed tremendous consistency in his game over the ages, Kagere is  expected to be a valuable addition to the Reds who gave him a befitting welcome when he made his debut on Monday afternoon in a Cecafa Kagame Cup group match against APR of Rwanda, here in Dar.

It was a perfect debut as he scored before the home fans, converting from the spot after he had been upended.

Though still settling, Kagere believes that as an athlete, he must be ready to face any obstacle thrown his way.”I’m ready to face any challenge, if you can’t then you can’t play football.”

“At Simba, most players are new and it would take time for us to know each other. APR are champions of Rwanda; they are a good team and we were lucky to beat them.”

Asked on the meaning of his goal celebration antic that saw him close one of his eye as he danced to the joy of the goal, the Rwandan marksman had more shock, at least for Gor fans.

He said: ” Closing one eye means that I’m in one team, Simba alone, at the moment.”
