National team coach Stanley Okumbi is thoroughly impressed with Gor Mahia midfield ace Francis Kahata. In Okumbi’s mind, Kahata was the engine of the team on Sunday driving forward and creating numerous chances.
“Kahata played so well created many chances and I am happy with him.” said Okumbi to futaa.com
Indeed Kahata likely registered more passes than anyone unlike the other members of the midfield who were less impressive. Johannah and Timbe scored but they have been accused of playing very selfishly as was Paul Were. Two of these players are transfer targets of Gor Mahia. The price tag that Bob Munro has put on Johannah is said to be Ksh 10 million. It must be said that Johannah’s lob over the advancing Congo goalkeeper was impressive.
Okumbi did not field Kahata in his first two matches against Guinea Bissau and must be regretting it.
