In an attempt to make amends, Harambee stars striker Masoud Juma has taken to social media to publicly apologize to fans of Gor Mahia and AFC Leopards for what he terms “A misunderstanding”.
“A day like this two years ago I had a misunderstanding with fans especially from Gor Mahia and AFC (Leopards). It was a bad show for sure but nothing has lost. Today, I just want to ask for their forgiveness from the bottom of my heart. It happens in football,” ,” Masoud wrote on his official Facebook page.
In 2017, Juma blasted fans of Gor Mahia and AFC, telling them he would never consider ‘playing for them because they were small teams and he was only interested in big teams.
Since then, he has turned out for four teams namely South Africa’s Cape Town City, Dibba El Fujairah (UAE), Al Nasr (Libya) and JS Kabyile (Algeria) but without notable success. He has not been in the frame for the national team.
Polack: We were average against Ulinzi
Gor Mahia were forced to draw for the first time this season and coach Steve Polack was left a dissappointed man after the match.
“It was an average display from my team, we did not play as we usually do,” Polack told goal.com
According to the coach, Kogalo did not play to their usual standards.
“Defensively we were better and did not allow [Ulinzi] to trouble our goalkeeper especially in the second half, but we also did not take the few chances we had. Yes, we did not lose the match, it is a point gained but I feel we did not play our usual game.” he continued.
Polack feels that the presence of the team captain would have made a difference.
“[Muguna] is a good player, but we did not have him for the game; maybe he could have helped us or not but he is a quality player,” Polack concluded.
And on a positive note, Boniface Oluoch kept a clean sheet for the third succesive game.
The draw enabled Gor Mahia to remain atop the standings with 25 points. Tusker area close second with 24 points after edging Bandari. This season is proving to be a closer contest than last season.
