Congratulations to Ali Abondo

Midfielder Ali Abondo has been named KPL player of the month. This is a new award created by the Sports Journalists Association of Kenya (SJAK), to motivate players.

In the process, Abondo bagged Ksh 50,000 and a 42 inch television as prizes.

He beat AFC Leopards’ Jacob Keli and Tusker’s Jesse Were to the award. The humble Abondo was not sure if he deserved the prize.

“Am happy to win the first award; I had the feeling but I was not 100% sure because there are many more good players who deserve. I thank God for the award and I thank the organizers too for coming up with the initiative. It is a noble idea to motivate players and in the bigger picture, the team benefits as well.” he said according to supersport.

He expressed gratitude to his team-mates for enabling him to bag the award.

“My aim for the season is to help Gor Mahia to stay on top to the end of the season and I understand it is not just about me but my team mates as well. I thank them all and the coach too for the support,” he said.

Abondo has found the back of the net a total of 11 times in different competitions this season. His most recent effort was a free-kick against SoNy of Awendo seen below

    1. And now CAF fines Gor Mahia? Nyamweya fight your battles with Rachier, you are digging your grave now when you involve Kogallo

  2. A 7 points gap if ULINZI beats mathare with their match at hand. Otherwise it is officially 8 points gap after 11 matches. 4 more to go. Bag 10 points out of 12 and rest at the minimum with 37 points or else bag 12 and finish tops with 39 points. This will be a historical achievement and coach Nuttal will have stamped his name in the hall of farm in both K’Ogalo and KPL competition.
