Leeds will be in attendance for Gor Mahia’s friendly with Everton at Goodison Park

Leeds will be in attendance for Gor Mahia’s friendly with Everton at Goodison Park

Leeds United will be in attendance when Gor Mahia take on Everton in November, according to a report by Goal.

The Kenyan outfit will play the Premier League side for the second time having first met back in June in Dar es Salaam.

It is understood that both Leeds and Birmingham City will have scouts watching, with manager Dylan Kerr confirming that they will be in the stands when they meet at Goodison Park in the early part of November.


Kerr, who was once a former Elland Road player, has revealed that he is hoping his players take full advantage of the opportunity and put their name out there.

“Birmingham and Leeds have confirmed that they will attend our match against Everton and this is a great chance for my players to market themselves,” he said.

“A chance for them to change their lives for good if they shine. You never get such opportunities because they are very rare and my boys are aware of the same.

“They must play to impress and they must also show that they are the Kenyan champions. It will be a good chance for them to shine away from home.”

The Verdict:

It would appear to be a strange move for Leeds to take an interest in the game, however, it could present them with an ideal opportunity.

The Whites have signed a number of prospects before to feature in the developmental side to see if they will progress into the players that their potential shows.

However, Leeds and Marcelo Bielsa could also look to use the game as a chance to watch some of Everton’s players as well, as they may look to make a move to strengthen their Championship promotion ambitions.
