Last year Kogalo went on an amazing run that took them from fighting relegation to taking the league lead with a match left to go. When they lost the league on the final day, many of the players and the fans were inconsolable. The draw on the final day left coach Logarusic so furious that he threw away his writing board at the end of the game. It was the second time in three years that Kogalo were in contention to win the league on the last day.
Gor Mahia are determined to make amends this season and will use the events of last year as motivation. “Last year, we did not achieve what we wanted. We only won two trophies out of a possible three. We have to look at what went wrong and improve on it. As coach, I always seek to improve. I do not dwell on my success but my failures,”, coach Logarusic told the Daily Nation.
This year, Logarusic is focused primarily on the league. ““Last year we won two trophies but there was no excitement among the fans. It is a long time since Gor won the league title and winning it this year will make all the difference for the club,” he said. ‘’ Logarusic told the Standard. Logarusic added that they would give their best in other competitions.
Logarusic has indicated that the players are yet to attain full fitness. but pointed out he is working hard to ensure they are ready for the Saturday fixture. “We have just started running with the ball to lighten up our players. It was obvious before that most of them were heavy after a long lay off,” said the coach to the Standard.
