Sserunkuma focused on league title not scoring title

Dan Sserunkuma has been the most consistent scorer in the Kenya premier league over the past in 2012, he almost nailed the scoring title but missed by finishing only one goal behind John Baraza. In 2013, he spent much of the first leg on the bench as coach Logarusic preferred Mungai Kiongera and Rama Salim upfront. But he came on strong in the second leg, scoring 8 goals. In 2011, he had six goals, which was four behind Hugo Nzangu who was the leading scorer.

Gor Mahia rarely produces the league’s leading scorer. In fact one might have to go back to the 1990s or even the 1980s to find the last time a Gor Mahia players was the top scorer. In the intervening period, other players like George Odhiambo, Emmanuel Wakata, Steve Okumu and Tom Odhiambo have been among the leading goal scorers.

This season however, Sserunkuma has topped the scoring charts for most of the season and seems destined to capture the scoring crown. With three matches left, Sserunkuma is in the drivers seat with 15 goals. Stepehen Waruru of Ulinzi is breathing down his neck with 11 goals.

But he is nonplussed and insists that winning the league is far more important.

“It is great to be the leading scorer but for me the most important thing is helping Gor Mahia win the title. Two years ago, I scored many goals but it did not give us the title,” he told the Standard.
And he is under no illusions but how difficult the match against Sofapaka will be.
“Sofapaka are a good side who are also keen on winning the KPL title. We expect a tough match against them on Sunday and for this reason, we must all be at our best. It will not be an easy match and we need to maintain our focus all through.

  2. Eh! Kwani where are people? Where have all the bloggers gone? Eric Yuko, Could they have gone to search for the missing Ingo?

  3. We are around but thinking a lot. I in particularly, am thinking how this Sunday could turn out. I am reflecting on Gor vs Thika last match 2012 which a silly ball bounced off Jerry’s hands and that’s how we lost the title. I am thinking amount 2011 when again we were held by City Stars for Ulinzi to lift the title in Nakuru – Berry played his last match before leaving.

    I am thinking about Danny 2013 MAGNIFICENT Goal AT KASARANI against THIS Sofapaka which lifted my sinking soul and broke the Trophy Drought after so many years

    We have all these players this sunday. WE have Jerry ( I saw something from him last weekend but wish to forgive and forget and hope that nothing of sort comes around these three games) We have Berry who got us close in 2012 but we never got there and we have Danny who has lifted us for the last two years.

    So I see all possibilities this Sunday. I will be there to watch some good football and expect good results, but everything is possible.

    That’s why we are away from the blog.

  4. The mention of Danny rekindles last year’s fresh memories at Kasarani.May we do it again at Masaku or whichever venue KPL decides this match be played at.All the best,K’ogallo
