After bagging his first silverware as the coach of Gor Mahia, Croat Zdravko Logarusic has now set his predative eye on defending the FKF Cup, much more charged by the fact that he will earn a chance to take Gor Mahia to the continental stage.
“The next thing on my mind is the FKF Cup. The Top 8 is gone and we now have to set new targets. We are in the quarter finals and it is a challenge to us to keep up with the expectations. We know that winning the FKF Cup will give us a chance to play in the CAF Confederations Cup and that is our motivation.” he says.
“I know the ability of my boys and I have seen them improve quite a lot and that is something positive. As for the league, we are clutching at our position taking each match as it comes. It might seem unrealistic to say that we are going for the league but if the top teams make mistakes, we will be there with them,” Logarusic adds.
Gor Mahia are currently placed 5th on the log with 33 points after 20 matches. They will play away to Mathare United and Coach Logarusic might be just the man to hand K’Ogalo the League crown after a 17 year wait. They came closest in 2010 under Coach Zedekiah Otieno but Ulinzi Stars maintained their grip at the Top with Gor coming in second.
