Kogalo resume training without coach

Gor Mahia have resumed light training without their Croatian magician of a coach Zdravko Logarusic with fitness trainer Mikael Igendia tasked to get K’Ogalo in tip top shape before facing AFC Leopards on Sunday.

K’Ogalo officials were coy on Monday as to when their touchline king of drama would return, with both secretary general George Bwana and assistant coach Bobby Ogolla saying, “He would return in the course of the week.”


Having closed the gap on Leopards to two points with a win over Sony Sugar on September 9, Logarusic flew to Croatia perhaps for some pod pekom cuisine before the energy-sapping derby at Kasarani.

In his absence, however, his in-form charges have been boosted by return to training of midfielder Joseph Njuguna.

 Overtaking lane

Midfielder Moses Odhiambo skipped Monday’s morning training after complaining of  fever.

Gor Mahia, as their fans have been joking that “they have now switched to the overtaking lane as AFC Leopards choke,” will hope to shift gears this Sunday to shoot to the summit of the KPL table.

K’Ogalo have enjoyed heart-warming form, winning the KPL Top 8 with a 2-0 beating of Ulinzi Stars and are in the quarterfinals of the President’s Cup.

They are also unbeaten in the league since losing 1-0 to Ulinzi Stars at Afraha on April 21. In 13 matches since then, Gor Mahia have won 10 and drawn three times yet Logarusic nonchalantly said he would talk about the KPL title once there is no team ahead of him.

  1. All the best guys. The tactics remain the same. And the moto ‘ONE GAME AT A TIME’. Once the coach comes back with ‘Croatian magic’ it will be downhill all the way

  2. News of the week- Joseph Njuguna is back!!! That is the man who will tidy things up in the middle of the park on Sato. Very level headed. AFC is likely to play like a wounded lion. They will take the risk. That is likely to cause GM some concern. However, a win for Gm will take off pressure that have been building in the fans. Go Go!! 3-1 in favour of GM is not a bad prediction! Kelele ianze sasa!!

  3. Morale iko juu tu sana. We must get the three points. As Dan has stated @1 we will always stick to our motto ‘take one game at a time’.

  4. we will triumph!!!!!
    I like the tempo at the moment.

    can someone confirm the motivational kitty or it is another JOKE? why cant we have a strong Communication desk? we only learn things from other blogs.

  5. the focus is very clear and sharp..K’OGALO one game at a time,..that way you concentrate your energy where it matters most. The Game is over hyped..we looking forward to TUSKER..INGWE is shadow this time round.

  6. I urge the players to go there to get us the three ponts but they should not go there overconfident that Ingwe lost their last match thinking that it will be a walk in the park.Otherwise I foresee amassive result for Kogallo 3 goals and above will not be to much to ask if anything the goal difference may determine the league the way it is going.
