Gor Mahia Coach Zdravko Logarusic says his players should always be ready to play in any position they are assigned to. The Croat made several key changes that led to a great comeback for Gor Mahia who were trailing Mathare 2-0, pulling players into different playing positions. This paid off as the match ended 2-2.
Logarusic pulled out central defender Donald Mosoti and brought in the creative Kelvin Omondi. This change pulled Teddy Akumu from his pivot midfield point and into central defense. In the second half, he also pulled out defender Solomon Nasio and brought in Itubu Imbem. He then went on to display his tactical genius when he left a “Hole” at left back and pulled David Owino to right back.
“We had two goals which were cheaply given by individual error. It was not that we played badly but just a slight loss in concentration. I had to surprise Mathare by bringing in changes they least expected. I shuffled the players and that means that all my players have to be used to playing several positions,” Logarusic told Michezoafrika.com.
“I am building a team with versatile players and in modern football this is the modern way of play. You can change your tact anytime and you have to have players who can quickly fit into any position they are assigned. I am happy we are getting there,” Logarusic adds.
The Coach is now shifting focus to a tight week where they invite relegation threatened Oserian on Wednesday night at the Nyayo Stadium before playing Western Stima on Saturday at “Tok Komwanda” in the FKF Cup Quarter finals.
