Gor Mahia will open their 2019-2020 Kenya Premier League campaign with a match against Tusker on Saturday. The match will be played at Kisumu.
The match was originally slated for Machakos
“We don’t have fans in Machakos and hence the decision to shift the game to Kisumu, where we have many fans and we know they will turn in large numbers to support the team.” said Omondi Aduda to goal.com
Aduda also noted that eticketing will be utilized for all matches
“That is what we have adopted and it is part of our new plans to restructure the day to day running of the club,” Aduda continued.
“We want to maximise on the revenue we get from gate collections and also bring order when it comes to fans purchasing tickets. We will not accept cash at the gates, and anyone intending to attend the match should purchase his or her ticket online.”
With eTicketing, the attendance and gate proceeds should be made public as soon as ticket sales have been completed, which is typically during the match.
Aigle coach: Gor Mahia have weak links
Aigle Noir coach Joslin Bifpubusa thinks that Gor Mahia has certain players who are weak links and that this issue will need to be resolved before Gor Mahia play against USM Alger.
“Gor are a good side with good players, and they played some good football.
However, they will have to make some amends to their team if they are to make it past USM Alger.
“There are some two players in the team I felt they do not deserve to be given a starting berth, yes they might have a certain role to play, but I think they are a weak link in the team.
“Maybe it is because the coach did not have all his players available for the game and had to do with them.” he said to goal.com
The Burundian coach said his team lost due to inexperience.
“We sold about 90% of our players and those with me are completely new, and their lack of experience was exposed. Stagefright got the better of them and it contributed to the two goals which we conceded within the first 20 minutes. I just wish Gor Mahia all the best in their next game, but for us we need to go and continue rebuilding.” he said.
Polack Impressed with Tobias Otieno
One of the surprise signings of this season is Tobias Otieno. The Youthful midfielder previously played for the Gor Mahia U19 team.
“Otieno is a brilliant midfielder. He is still very young and has age on his side and I honestly think he will develop into one of the best defensive midfielders,” Polack told the Nation
Polack also noted that Otieno is a keen learner.
“He is very eager to learn and constantly asks questions on positioning and other technical aspects of the game and this is a clear indication of a player who is serious with his career,” he concluded.
