After enduring a long and cold night at the Casablanca Airport in Morocco, weary Gor Mahia players and technical bench officials landed here at Algiers International Airport shortly after 4.30pm Kenyan time with a contingent of 17 players and four officials.

The team is headed to ”City Hotel” where the club chairman Ambrose Rachier had booked them. Their arrival is a sigh of relief for the club boss and the fans.

Despite the fatigue and jet lag, the team is penciled to have a  light training session this evening  at the 05 JuIllet Stadium in Algiers — the venue of tomorrow’s match.

The team endured a horrific long journey, travelling through long route and spending the night at Morocco’s Casablanca Airport after failing to secure a hotel.
