Gor Mahia coach Bobby Williamson has stated that the club will not miss a beat now that dynamic winger Kevin Omondi and defensive midfielder Anthony Akumu have left.
Williamson indicated that Omondi had not played much of a role this year as he has been beset by injuries.
“He has not started many matches this season due to injuries. We will miss him in training no doubt but want to wish him the best as he begins a new career,” said Williamson to goal.com about Kevin Omondi.
Kevin Omondi has signed up at Moroka Swallows of the South African PSL.
On Anthony Akumu, Williamson feels that the club has other options.
“We have players who can fit in his shoes and so are not worried about his departure.” said Williamson to goal.com.
Perhaps Williamson has seen enough of Collins Okoth “Gattuso” to know that he will be an adequate replacement for Akumu. But Williamson will have his work cut out and will have to use all his knowledge of psychology to convince Gattuso to shape up and focus on performing. He will need to remind Gattuso of the period around 2011 when he was in good enough form to be named to the national team.
Other news for the club indicates that Innocent Mutiso has resumed training. The lively winger has been out with a knee injury.
