Gor Mahia coach Dylan Kerr has suggested that FKF chair Nick Mwendwa deliberately scheduled the Shield match against Kariobangi Sharks too close to Gor Mahia’s arrival from Algeria. Gor Mahia did not have any time to hold a training session before the match and had not recovered from jet lag.
“Congratulations to Sharks they were the better side today I can, however bad we played be so proud how they gave everything even though it wasn’t the best today. Thank you to the K’Ogalo family who supported us today pole that we lost. FKF president new what he was doing” said Kerr in a tweet.
Kerr further went on to lament over the glut of fixtures that he says doomed Gor Mahia in both tha CAF Cofederations cup and the Shield
“20 games in 60 days there’s a saying Fail to Prepare, Prepare to Fail … we have done everything as a technical team to maintain a winning mentality, fitness and be motivated and will continue to do this as long as we can do it the right way. You do the math how can I prepare ?” he said
In another tweet, Kett commended his players for playing well under difficult circumstances.
“Dr, what we have done is not human even if we are Kenyan. NOT ONE WORLD ASSOCIATION would do our programme which includes Travel, sleeping away and playing to the intensity we do. What these guys do no money could buy we give everything ALL of us do. Been an amazing achievement”
The players for their part are also highly appreciative of the work Dylan Kerr has done.
“I would Iike to thank the coach for the relationship, courage and trust he has shown to the players. He has given each and every player an opportunity to showcase his ability – may God bless him,’’ said Innocent Wafula who has skippered the side in some matches this season.
