Gor Mahia are determined to put aside their disappointing 2016 campaign which ended trophyless. Organizing secretary Judith Nyangi is adamant that the club will put on a better performance in 2016.
“We are definitely ready to rock once again, ready to take over from where we left in 2015. We are going for all trophies available.” said Nyangi to goal.com
Nyangi has also stated that the intense competition for places in camp will help
“We have to reclaim our lost glory and prove our doubters wrong. Competition in camp is encouraging, and that is what we definitely want because it means quality to us,” she told Goal.”
Newly elected skipper, Musa Mohamed is also keen to lead by example and improve from last season.
“I feel there was plenty to pick from our last campaign coming through the changes that happened. It behind us and we can only hope and look towards a better season ahead. Our aim is singular, every player know we have to fight for every available trophy come next season” said Musa to futaa.com
Musa had a decent season in 2016, perhaps his best yet. Defence was certainly not the problem in 2016. Musa joined Gor Mahia in 2010 along with Kevin Omondi after they had steered Langata high school to winning their first and only Nairobi provincial schools championships. He is now going into his eighth season at Kogalo. The other players who joined along with them were Anthony Akumu, Dan Makori, John Kiplangat, Gradus Ochieng and Andrew Ongwae.
Coach Ze Maria has also pointedly stated that every match is a must win for Kogalo.
At Gor Mahia we play to win in every match and competition the same applies this year more than the past where we finished second in the league. This season we only have one goal; to win the league, he said to futaa.com
Ze Maria is also optimistic about the 2017 season, having shored up the midfield which was a problem area last season with Khalid Aucho having one leg in the club and the other leg outside and Collins Okoth missing in action for large swathes of the season.
“We had our problems in that department last season including off the field. . We have brought in good players in the position and i hope that this season, it a good challenge for us” he told futaa.
Gor Mahia shored up that department by signing KPL player of the year Kenneth Muguna and Rwandan Jean Baptiste Mugiraneza as deep midfielders.
