Among the new players paraded on Saturday evening by Gor Mahia in the friendly against Tusker, most were young players who were being tested on hot grounds by Coach Zdravko Logarusic. Only two; Imbem Itubu and Serenkuma Danni were old guards who have been in the league.

Coach Logarusic threw in four young players whom he hopes will spark life for his K’Ogalo side and especially for a strong future.

Antony Gathu was picked from Thika side Gatundu FC which plays in the nationwide league and he impressed Coach Logarusic though he is yet to hit his excitement nerves. Young Eddy Mubiru from Uganda who was voted the best player in last year’s Kenya National Secondary School games was also handed play time.

Another relatively new player was Francis Oduor, who has had stints with Tusker and also gone for trials severally in Denmark.

According to Team Manager Tom Ogweno who was instrumental in identifying the players, they are talented and have a great future with them. He hopes that they will impress the entire technical bench and earn a berth in the team.

    Our Coach at it again!

    Gor Mahia distances itself from Logarusic’s comments
    Kenyan Premier League (KPL) giants Gor Mahia have distanced themselves from the comments made by the team’s Croatian coach Zdravko Logarusic over the Harambee Stars job after a run of poor outings by the national team.
    Qualified
    The coach, in an interview with futaa.com had claimed he is well qualified to coach the national team, further adding that if the Football Kenya Federation (FKF) wants a foreigner as a coach, it needs to look no further.
    His sentiments however, have not been well received by the club’s executive wing. The vice chairman Faiz Ochieng has been infuriated by the comments, claiming the team’s fans are up in arms over the comments and adds that the executive willconsult and give an official stand over the comments.
    No mandate
    -We are distancing ourselves from what the coach said. It should be first and foremost understood that the coach is an employee of Gor Mahia and the brand called Gor Mahia should not be dragged into such a mess. He has no mandate whatsoever to make such a move.
    Official statement
    -It is so demeaning to the club and all our fans because they are calling us from all over complaining about his comments to the media. Let me put it very clearly that his job in Kenya is only to coach Gor Mahia. We are going to consult as the executive and give an official statement over the coach’s comments, an irked Faiz told futaa.com .
    The Croat has been making clear his dissatisfaction at the national team’s performance since they played Malawi and managed a draw in the 2014 World Cup qualifiers in Nairobi three weeks ago.

    If only the EC members criticising the coach would themselves look back at their comments. It is like the case of the kettle calling the pot black. At times keeping quiet is golden

    How many new players do we have or have we signed? Someone pls tell me. I’ve seen the topic ‘Gor Mahia trying out new players’ but it’s not very clear who these new players are. I know of two players, even though only Dan Ssurunkuma’s signing from CITY STARS is very clear.

  • samuel oduor says:

    Pleas we want to know our new signing before friday,because second leg is on.

  • Benson Disi says:

    Your coach sometimes behaves strangely like he is not himself…..rather under the influence of some dry “burning leaves” like some of our politicians! so the EC should just excuse him.
