Gor Mahia manager John Bobby Ogolla is an angry man after the match against AFC Leopards on Sunday afternoon. Ogolla not only cited the red card situation but also other countless tackles on his players which left two of them substituted with injuries.
“The referee messed up the game. He came with a fixed mind and he was very inconsistent. The referees should really pull up their socks because this is not where we should be going. Rama Salim was intentionally kicked, Kelvin Omondi was also hacked down twice heading to goal, Kitawi was also hacked and we were forced to sub him, all these went un questioned by the referee”, he says.
“The fans are human beings and we cannot blame them. Though that is not the kind of action we should resort to, they were irked by the referee who was constantly frustrating us.”, he adds.
Ogolla has also blamed the police for firing tear gas at the Gor fans saying that it made the atmosphere worse.
“Were the Gor fans fighting themselves? Then why did they blast tear gas only on the Gor Fans? Police should not have fired the tear gas because that only worked to worsen the situation. I am very disappointed”, he says.
On the match, Ogolla says that he is content with the team as it has been building up step by step each day.
“I am encouraged by the boys. Step by step we are coming up and we are getting better. All in all I am delighted with the point because it is better than none”, he adds
