In this TV interview, Dylan Kerr says he fails to understand why KPL is congesting the fixtures during the month of March when there are 10 months left in the year. He says KPL should make it possible for Kenyan teams to do well in the Africa Champions League by ensuring that teams are well rested. Kerr is unhappy that his team is forced to play5 games within 14 days and yet are still expected to do well against Esperance.
Nevertheless after the Bandari tie, Kerr was more positive ahead of the mammoth March 7 encounter against Esperance of Tunisia. This after Gor Mahia put on a sold performance against previous league leaders Bandari on Saturday.
“I wanted the performance today, I wanted the energy and I got it from my players,” said Kerr to goal.com
This despite the fact that Gor Mahia have lost Wellington Ochieng to a long term injury. Ugandan utility player Godfrey Walusimbi is also injured, which leaves Gor Mahia with few options at the fullback position.
The good news is that Ivorian Striker Ephrem Guikan who picked up a concussion is now out of danger.
“Guikan suffered a knock after falling awkwardly from the aerial challenge. He suffered concussion but doctors have cleared him. He is now out of danger and can play next match if the coach wants to use him.” said club CEO Omondi Aduda to goal.com
