Gor Mahia FC Secretary General Ronald Ngala has asked the club’s fans to show maturity and shun any sort of violent behaviour that may result in CAF sanctions when they take on RS Berkane of Morocco.

Berkane are already in Nairobi ahead of the first leg of their CAF Confederation Cup quarter-finals clash at the Kasarani Stadium and Ngala has told the K’Ogalo faithful to be in their best behaviour on Sunday.

“I Kindly urge our supporters to observe maturity while celebrating or expressing dissatisfaction at a loss,” Ngala said.

The official said they are still waiting for CAF’s take on the previous incident that saw fans pour into the Kasarani pitch after Gor defeated Petro Atletico 1-0 to seal a historic qualification into the quarter-finals.

Just this week, Gor were fined KSh860,000 by the Kenyan Premier League Independent Disciplinary Body for pitch invasion and destruction of property  by supporters. The fine may be bigger for the offence committed during continental assignments.

Meanwhile, Berkane will hold a light training session at Utalii grounds today at 3 o’clock pm before having a feel of the Kasarani pitch on Saturday.

Gor advanced to the last eight after finishing second in Group D behind Egyptian giants Zamalek SC making them the first Kenyan team to make it to this stage.

The Kenyan champions must overcome Berkane without four of its key players in the first leg with captain Harun Shakava, defender Shafiq Batambuze, Ernest Wendo and Jacques Tuyisenge all served with suspensions.

The second leg of the clash will played on April 14.
